Omri Casspi is expected to become a free agent once he is waived by the New Orleans Pelicans.
Casspi played for the Houston Rockets this past season.
“My agent (Dan Fegan) is talking with a number of teams, and the Kings are one of them," said Casspi. "Couldn’t they use a stretch forward who can hit a three and loves to run? I think I could help, and it would be fun to play with Rudy (Gay), DeMarcus (Cousins), J.T. I still have a lot of friends there. I would love to come back and fulfill my path. But now I have to concentrate on the national team, and maybe, I can get some of this pressure off my chest.”
