Casspi began the 2016-17 season on the Kings, where he averaged 5.9 points and 4.1 rebounds in 18 minutes per contest. He was shipped to New Orleans in the Boogie trade and appeared in just one game before breaking his thumb. The Pelicans waived him immediately after.
Stein tweeted that Minnesota head coach Tom Thibodeau had dinner with Omri to try and convince him to join the team.
