The Israeli NBA basketball player, who is currently in Israel with his pregnant wife, spent Tuesday night speaking with Golden State Warriors representatives in order to finalize the details of his one-year deal. “Omri was happy and excited to receive the offer from the team,” Omri Casspi’s father Avi told Channel 2 Online. Avi added that his son never considered rejecting the offer.

Casspi is expected to fly to San Francisco within the next few days in order to meet with his new team. The Golden State Warriors representatives contacted Casspi on July 1, the first day teams are allowed to start the official negotiation process with NBA free agency players.

According to the deal, Casspi will only earn $2.1 million during the season, the minimum salary for a player with an eight-year NBA career. However, he will gain the opportunity to play alongside some of the best players in the league and maybe even have a shot at playing in the next playoff games.
