Wojnarowski: Omri Casspi requests trade from Cavaliers

Michael Hickey-US PRESSWIRE

Omri Casspi has demanded a trade from the Cavaliers. Let's see what Twitter said.

According to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski (wow it's really scary I can spell that from memory at this point), Cavaliers' forward Omri Casspi has requested a trade.

Dropped out of the Cleveland Cavaliers' rotation, forward Omri Casspi, the NBA's first Israeli-born player, has requested a trade, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Casspi has shown significant flashes of promise in his young career, but he has become an afterthought for the struggling Cavaliers since missing five games with gastroenteritis in December.

Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant has been making calls on possible deals for Casspi, but nothing has materialized. The request for a trade was made through Casspi's representatives with Creative Arts Agency (CAA), sources said.


Cleveland officials privately insist that no such request was made, but multiple league sources with knowledge say that CAA recently made the request. Per league rules, neither the agent nor Casspi can publicly make a trade request without being subject to league-mandated fines.

First Samardo Samuels, now Omri Casspi. What are the Cavaliers ever going to do?! There are conflicting reports from Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal saying that Casspi hasn't requested a trade, but having said that I'm just going to let Twitter handle this one instead of me making jokes.
