Omri’s on the way out

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY SI­MON GRIVER

BAS­KET­BALL Omri Casspi’s six-year stay in the NBA looks set to end.

Casspi, 26, has left the Hous­ton Rock­ets for the New Or­leans Pel­i­cans in a com­pli­cated three-way trade that also in­volved the Wash­ing­ton Wiz­ards and five other play­ers.

Re­ports from Amer­ica claim that New Or­leans will waive Casspi’s con­tract leav­ing him a free agent and un­less he re­ceives an­other NBA of­fer, a re­turn to Mac­cabi Tel Aviv looks im­mi­nent.

He started last year strongly in Hous­ton, but his form faded and he fin­ished the sea­son with an aver­age of 6.9 points.
