HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — At least one member of the Sacramento Kings doesn’t want to relocate to Southern California.
At least not with the Kings.
Omri Casspi, a feel good story two years ago when he surprised us all during his rookie season, has grown disenchanted with his role with the Kings this season.
He wants out. And he didn’t mince his words either, explaining in a column he wrote for an Israeli sports website, ONE, that his situation has become unbearable:
“It’s not easy for me to sit on the bench, which has happened to me quite a bit in Sacramento’s last few games. I’m a player who lives the game and as soon as you take away the thing I love the most in the world – playing basketball, it is hard for me.
“The situation in Sacramento is not like it used to be in the past. Coach Paul Westphal is experimenting and trying different things and I’m certainly not in his plans. We have six more games until the end of the season, and although I won’t say that I’m counting the seconds, it is clear to me that I will have to make some decisions at the end of the year.”
