Omri Casspi has signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Casspi made his professional debut with Maccabi in 2004 and came to the NBA in 2009.

"Omri Casspi returned to his home, to Maccabi," said head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos. "I am very pleased that we signed the best Israeli player. Omri will help the team very well to achieve our goals and he is excited to come back and help the team fight for its goals. Maccabi brought back the best Israeli player and that is kind of a statement."

"The truth is that I am very excited, I did not believe I would be that excited," said Casspi. "I am returning home, returning to Maccabi Tel Aviv. I got here for the first time when I was 13 years old. I am proud and excited to be wearing the Maccabi jersey with the star of David on the back. This is a very big privilege."
