Omri Casspi to sign with Houston Rockets


( Omri Casspi, the first Israeli-born player in National Basketball Association (NBA) history, has agreed to terms on a two-year, $2 million contract with the Houston Rockets, who will be his third NBA team, the Houston Chronicle reported. A 6-foot-9 forward whose four NBA seasons have been split between the Sacramento Kings and Cleveland Cavaliers, Casspi’s best season came as a rookie in 2009-10, when he averaged 10.3 points and 4.5 rebounds per game for the Kings. Casspi will be joined in the state of Texas next season by the second Israel-born player in NBA history, 6-foot-3 Israeli point guard Gal Mekel, who reportedly agreed to a three-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks last week.
