NBA Free Agency: Warriors add another 3-point weapon off the bench in Omri Casspi
The journeyman forward has been unable to find a home so far in the NBA
The world champions have added an extra piece to their bench, as ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Golden State Warriors have agreed to a one-year deal with eight-year veteran forward Omri Casspi.
The 29-year-old Israel native has played with five teams in his eight seasons, including two stints with the Sacramento Kings. Casspi has shown promise at various stops (he averaged 11.8 points per game for the Kings in 2015-16), but has been unable to find a permanent home. He finished last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he averaged 3.5 points in 17 minutes per game.
A 6-9 wing capable of playing both forward positions, Casspi is actually a great fit for the Warriors. Golden State is hoping that their newest addition will be able to effectively knock down 3s (he's a career 37 percent shooter) and finish in transition while boosting the energy level of the bench.
