Sacramento Kings sign 2009 first round draft pick Omri Casspi

The Sacramento Kings today signed Omri Casspi to a contract, according to Kings’ President of Basketball Operations Geoff Petrie. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

All NBA first round draft picks are guaranteed a contract, provided they elect to join the league right away. So, this is standard.

Casspi was selected by the Kings in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2009 NBA Draft. He is the first player from Israel to be drafted by an NBA team in the first round.
