Wolves To Sign Omri Casspi 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:31 am

Omri Casspi has agreed to sign with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the remainder of the season.


Casspi was acquired by New Orleans from Sacramento as part of the DeMarcus Cousins trade and had been earmarked for a significant role by the Pelicans, only to suffer a broken right thumb in his first game with his new team.


But Casspi returned from the injury ahead of schedule.


Tom Thibodeau met with Casspi over dinner this weekend in New Orleans in advance of the Wolves' road game Sunday night against the Pelicans.


The Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers also had interest in Casspi.

Pelicans... sheesh, that really sucks.
