Omri Casspi SG/SF NO 27 Days

Omri Casspi is finalizing a one-year contract with the Kings after clearing waivers on Friday.

The move will reportedly allow the Kings to keep Quincy Acy and that was previously in doubt. Casspi isn't going to move the needle in fantasy or reality, but he will add to the glut of power forwards the Kings are swimming in.

Omri Casspi reportedly cleared waivers on Friday, and he is now a free agent.

Casspi is now free to sign with a team of his choosing, but with career averages of 7.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 0.9 three-pointers a game, it won't matter where he lands from a fantasy perceptive.

The Pelicans waived G/F Omri Casspi.

The writing has been on the wall for a while here with his contract becoming guaranteed on Aug. 1. Casspi had a solid preseason in Houston last season, but couldn't get his 2013-14 regular season off the ground. He'll get a camp invite somewhere.

Omri Casspi expects the Pelicans to waive him prior to August 1, when his $1.1 million deal would become guaranteed.

Casspi is a career 35.2 percent 3-point shooter and his minimum contract is reasonable, but apparently New Orleans doesn't feel that he'd add much to their roster. "My agent is talking with a number of teams and the Kings are one of them," Casspi said. "Couldn't they use a stretch forward who can hit a three and loves to run? ... I would love to come back [to Sacramento] and fulfill my path. But now I have to concentrate on the [Israeli] national team."

Omri Casspi was traded to the Pelicans as part of Sunday's three-team trade with the Wizards and Rockets.

Houston dealt Casspi, Omer Asik and $1.5 million in cash to the Pelicans in a deal which expanded to include five players, one draft pick, cash considerations and traded-player exceptions. Casspi averaged 18.1 minutes for Houston last season and may find himself with a bigger role in New Orleans, even if he comes off the bench behind Tyreke Evans at SF (which isn't guaranteed). We'll keep a close eye on his role throughout the preseason.

Omri Casspi will start at small forward in place of Chandler Parsons (wrist, hip) vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.

He played 22 minutes on Friday and will likely get minutes in the 20s again tonight. Casspi has a chance to score in the teens while hitting a couple treys, so he's a decent option for owners looking for something in that neighborhood.

Omri Casspi SG/SF NO 5 Months

Omri Casspi (illness) won't play against the Jazz on Monday.

He didn't play in three of the last four games, so the team is not going to miss him much. Casspi has very little fantasy value in even an extremely deep league.

Omri Casspi SG/SF NO 6 Months

Omri Casspi played 15 minutes off the bench on Saturday vs. the Pistons with 16 points, three boards, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He had a very minor elbow injury in this game, but he shot the subsequent free throws and it didn't seem to bother him for much more than one minute. Casspi stepped up tonight with Chandler Parsons sitting out due to an illness and has been helpful for the Rockets when they're short on bodies. Parsons should be ready for Tuesday, so there's no need to add Casspi.

Omri Casspi SG/SF NO 7 Months

Omri Casspi cooled off after a 20 and 12 night on Wednesday, scoring just five points with two rebounds in 18 minutes off the bench on Friday.

This was to be expected with Terrence Jones coming back and even if Jones hadn't played tonight it would've been tough for Casspi to keep it going. He can stay on the wire in most formats.

Omri Casspi SG/SF NO 7 Months

Omri Casspi hit 9-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points and 12 rebounds in Wednesday's win.

Casspi is not a must-own player and scored a total of six points in three games before breaking loose for 15 and 20 in his last two. The absence of Terrence Jones (thigh) is clearly a factor in his explosion, but Casspi has shown signs of breaking out at times throughout the season. Just keep an eye on him, and look for him to fade again once Jones is back from his injury.
