Cavs Omri Caspi demands a trade

Quote:
Omri Casspi has requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to sources.

GM 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.

Casspi has played just one minute for the Cavaliers since Dec. 11.

Raptors have been interested in Casspi for some time – he is shooting well and the Cavs don’t seem to need him anymore.

Worst case scenario he's no worse than any SF (not named Anderson) on our squad. He makes almost 2 mill less than Linas and his contract expires soon (qualifying offer for next season).

Although its obvious the cavs are looking for more than a Linas Kleiza. Even though LK only has a player option next season.

His ass/to ratio is horrible, not a great shooter (AA is better), at least not good enough when you're a D liability, his career is a steady downhill, weak body, can be called to join Israel's army in some pointless war against nation that has rocks and wooden shields for protection any moment, leaving team on ice, wouldn't be liked in large Canada's muslim community, could provoke riots...

I tried to be sarcastic, might stepped over the line, if so - delete (comment, not me)

Good luck to them then. They haven't played him in a month so what they expect i don't know but it shouldn't be much.

Since when is "asked for a trade" an actual maneuver? And if a player wants to be traded, do it quietly so your GM doesnt get fleeced and can actually find a trade for you.

why did you go there? "wouldn't be liked in large Canada's muslim community?" i don't know if that is exactly true. also, we have a large jewish community in toronto too you know. very large.

that aside. caspi does not do much for this team. hopefully BC is dreaming up something larger.

Casspi is better than most here give him credit for. They guy has a tough mentality as well. I say flip Landry for him and Walton and toss in Kleiza as a sweetener. Let the prodigal son return to the promised land.

Like raptorman said, this demand for trade lowered the price, I guess Caspi for 2nd rounder would work too, no need to give Fields away who is extraordinary glue guy - makes others look good, by looking bad himself That's the meaning of a glue guy?

BTW, Jose also asked to be traded earlier this year, right?

Casspi is ok. Playing for Sac and Cleveland is not ideal

Sarcastic or not he has a point. We saw what happened this summer with the riots all over the place and bringing Casspi over may provoke more stuff like that. What he would bring to the team would not be enough to overlook that.

And maybe its just perspective but I'm pretty sure the muslim community in Toronto is larger than the Jewish one. Not that that really matters though.
