Omri Casspi Hopes To Find Spot In Cavaliers Rotation
Omar Casspi knows he has to improve upon his 2011-12 averages of 7.1 points per game and 40.3 percent shooting to find a place in the Cavaliers rotation.
"Basically, I just have to go back to playing my basketball," Casspi told Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv this week. "To be good, effective, to punish -- everything I didn't do last season. I need to go back to my old self.
"I know that the team brought more players on the wings, and everybody in Cleveland is good. But none of us is an All- Star. We don't have Kobe or LeBron there. Coach [Byron] Scott says that whoever is better will play, and I believe him."
Casspi has enjoyed his time with the Cavaliers.
"I love Cleveland," Casspi told the newspaper. "They gave me a lot, I owe them a big one."
