Player Breakdown: Omri Casspi

August 24th, 2011 by Colin McGowan

From Conrad Kaczmarek at Fear the Sword:

Offensively, Casspi has an interesting skill set. At 6-foot-9-inches, he has more than adequate size to play the small forward position. Compare this to Christian Eyenga who measures in at merely 6-foot-5-inches. The size is a luxury that the Cavaliers would be happy to have at the 3-spot. It gives Byron Scott much more flexibility with the roster and would allow him to move Casspi to the 4-spot if they were to run a particularly small line-up out there.

Hit the link for Kaczmarek’s full analysis. As for me, I have little opinion on Casspi because, like most NBA fans not living in California’s capital, I have watched only a handful Kings games over the past couple of years. (I had to check in on my boy DeMarcus Cousins a couple times last season.) From what I understand, Casspi’s a lanky wing player who can shoot the three and doesn’t play defense. Remember when Phoenix wanted to offload Amare and the Cavs wouldn’t give up Hickson? Because I do.
