Personally, I think Casspi’s stock has probably fallen if you look at his productivity since he was drafted 23rd in 2009 draft by Sacramento. He averaged 10 PPG his rookie year and he has dropped each year since. If I’m not mistaken, I believe he was on the Spurs wish list in 2009 but as our team has progressed since 2009, we now have a need for, not only a big man to work around the basket, but small forwards who are healthy. Casspi does play a little like Gallinari, being 6’9” and away from the basket whereas we need the height and bulk in the middle. I’d hate to see us give up one of our already established bench players to make room for a questionable Casspi, so I’d have to pass on him.
