Casspi showing NBA friends a good time in Israel

Omri Casspi and NBA colleagues past and present spent the weekend in Jerusalem as part of a joint initiative between NBA Cares, the league’s global community outreach initiative, and the Omri Casspi Foundation, an organization set up by the player aimed at presenting Israel in a positive light across the world.

All-Star DeMarcus Cousins, as well as fellow Sacramento Kings teammates Rudy Gay and Caron Butler, arrived in Israel on Friday, with Iman Shumpert, Alan Anderson, Tyreke Evans and Chandler Parsons also among those who will spend the coming days in the Holy Land.

As part of their visit, Casspi and friends will also hold a basketball clinic with Maccabi Tel Aviv’s youth department on Wednesday.
