Omri Casspi, the first Israeli player to break through in the NBA, will announce his retirement tomorrow from professional basketball, according to Israeli media reports.

Casspi, 33, has spent the last two seasons at Maccabi Tel Aviv — where he first starred before being selected in the 2009 NBA Draft — but has been plagued by injuries.

During his 10-year NBA career, Casspi played for the Sacremento Kings, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors.

Casspi was left off the Warriors’ roster for the 2018 postseason, during which the team won the NBA Finals, but later received a championship ring.
