Omri Casspi Signs With Maccabi Tel Aviv 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:06 pm

Omri Casspi has signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv.


Casspi made his professional debut with Maccabi in 2004 and came to the NBA in 2009.


"Omri Casspi returned to his home, to Maccabi," said head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos. "I am very pleased that we signed the best Israeli player. Omri will help the team very well to achieve our goals and he is excited to come back and help the team fight for its goals. Maccabi brought back the best Israeli player and that is kind of a statement."


"The truth is that I am very excited, I did not believe I would be that excited," said Casspi. "I am returning home, returning to Maccabi Tel Aviv. I got here for the first time when I was 13 years old. I am proud and excited to be wearing the Maccabi jersey with the star of David on the back. This is a very big privilege."

Really? If anything he seems like he deserved more, not less, attention... Look Chandler Parsons... Way too much media burn.

True floor spacing 3&d-type guys are not as common as people think. Injuries derailed his NBA career, but Caspi has mad game. Check out his early career stats/high lights.
