SALTY DOG

NBA ROLE: VETERAN, HYBRID FORWARD

 

Omri Casspi is a very useful, hybrid forward; provides floor spacing and rebounding in the second unit – starting to play more small ball four; good shooter – form isn’t pretty (arm drops really far down) but Omri is normally in the 35-37% range from downtown, can really catch fire; one of the best, ‘create something out of nothing’ slashers – dribbles upright: won’t cross you up but hits stylish floaters and driving lay-ups off broken plays; cuts well – very good at angling his body to the rim before he makes the catch; falls into ‘shoot em up’ mode: much more efficient playing off someone who commands a double team or can penetrate & generate open opportunities; veteran, second unit forward
