Kings Select Omri Casspi of Israel With No. 23 Pick

New, comments

Omri Casspi became the first Israeli to be chosen in the first round of the NBA Draft at Pick No. 23. Casspi reportedly had a great workout in Sacramento a few weeks back. Donté Greene watched the audition, and noted that Casspi was "tough." And that's reputation he's built: he reportedly drew blood on Austin Daye at a workout in New Jersey.

The Kings left rebounding beast DeJuan Blair on the board. In fairness, everyone has left Blair on the board. I guess the MRIs which have been circulating were seriously bad.

New thread coming up for the second round.
