HoopsHype Omri Casspi rumors

December 5, 2013 Updates

As he took care of a few last preparations before Thursday’s trip to meet the president at a White House reception, Rockets forward Omri Casspi admitted to some building nerves. That did not stop him from imagining the game of basketball with President Obama that will not be part of the itinerary. “I wish we had some time to play, too,” Casspi said. “It could have been fun.” Casspi, however, said if they could play, he knew he would not have blocked an Obama shot. “I don’t want any Israel-United States drama, more drama,” Casspi said. “Let him shoot. Let him score. Let him feel good. We need that support.” Houston Chronicle

There was no malicious intent here — Dirk Nowitzki was going for the ball and the spectacular chase-down block. But instead he smacked Omri Casspi upside the head while the Rockets forward was going for a dunk. The referees reviewed it and rightfully called it a flagrant two, then ejected Nowitzki from Monday night’s preseason game. You can bet Nowitzki will get a fine for that in the coming days. The league frowns on smacking guys upside the head ala Deacon Jones. NBCSports.com

Timberwolves executive and veteran NBA head coach Flip Saunders was the guest speaker of the day, and put on a detailed clinic that showed players some ball handling and shooting drills, as well as some fundamentals and tricks of playing in the post at the professional level. Saunders was energetic and engaging, and the players seemed to respond well to his teachings. He got some assistance from both Omri Casspi and Kenneth Faried during his talk, which certainly didn’t hurt his credibility in the eyes of the young international players. NBCSports.com
