Casspi, who is extremely active in a number of Jewish community groups here and across the country, is in the last year of his contract, and the Cavs would have to make him a qualifying offer of $3.3 million to retain him, which seems unlikely. Casspi said he has no idea whether he'll be back next season -- and he's not worrying about it. "One thing I learned is to not think about the future too much,'' he said. "Take it one day at a time, one game at a time, play hard when you get the opportunity on both ends of the floor. That's what I'm trying to do. Whatever happens happens. I'll be really happy to be back. If not I'll find my way through the league. I'm happy that there's a lot of teams interested. Everything happens for a reason.'' Cleveland Plain Dealer

What do you expect to happen with Cavs forward Omri Casspi? Marc Stein: Omri will be in the NBA with a new team next season. He'll be a free agent in July, so he'll have the chance to choose his destination for the first time in his NBA career. I've believed from the beginning that he'd flourish in the NBA as a role player with a playoff team if he wound up in the right situation. My suspicion is that he'll join a contender and be far more effective as a glue guy with a good team than we've seen in Cleveland, which has never been a good fit for him. The Cavs' emphasis these past two seasons has been collecting assets for future moves, not necessarily what's happening on the court in the present. He's just got to tune out the naysayers and pick the right team in free agency. And then you'll see a different Omri. Haaretz
