Omri Casspi has established himself as a legitimate threat on offense. He gives the Sacramento Kings something to be happy about, and they really don’t have much to be happy about.
Casspi made 40.9% of his three-pointers last season on an average of 4.0 per game and finished 66.5% of attempts in the restricted area. His 3.0 drives per game produced points 81.2% of the time, a team-high.
Casspi was just sixth on the team in usage percentage last season but he was able to make his presence felt anyway. That’s a sign of a truly great role player.
The Kings were a sloppy team last season (they finished 28th in turnovers) but Casspi was efficient. With new head coach Dave Joerger at the helm hopefully the former Houston Rocket can excel on defense too.
