Omri Casspi, first Israeli NBA player, retires

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Then-NBA commissioner David Stern – according to Omri Casspi – smiled wider than usual when announcing the Kings drafting Casspi No. 23 in 2009.

The first Israeli player in the NBA, Casspi was a big deal to some people.

Now, after a decade in the NBA and two more years back with Maccabi Tel Aviv, Casspi has retired.

A hustle player and solid shooter, Casspi entered the NBA fairly ready to contribute.
