Marc Stein: After 10 seasons in the NBA as his country’s first first-round draft pick, Omri Casspi is scheduled to announce his retirement at a news conference tonight in his native Israel. He spent the last two seasons back at @MaccabitlvBC, where he played with the Wizards’ Deni Avdija.
“The game of basketball has given me a lot over the years,” Caspi said in his opening remarks. “As a young boy from Yavneh who started playing with friends and my big brother, who did not really know what he was saying and went out with number 18 on his shirt, today on July 18 I retire. For the [Maccabi] family, this is a group that taught me a lot about professionalism, hard work, victory at all costs. It fell on very modest ears and I appreciate those values I learned”.
