The Cleveland Cavaliers are expected to buy-out Omri Casspi, 24, by tomorrow's deadline for maintaining playoff eligibility. I remember Casspi as a decent rotation player with the Sacramento Kings. If Jeff Green plays a majority of his minutes at the power forward slot, Casspi could be a solid addition as Pierce's primary backup. At 6'9, Casspi is somewhat big for the 3, which could allow the Celtics to go with a larger lineup in certain matchups.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Omri show up somewhere with a larger Jewish population. Sorry, I tend to see everything from a marketing perspective...believe me, I'm no anti-semite. It just makes sense.
