Omri Casspi reaches two-year, $6 million deal to stay in Sacramento

Omri Casspi has a game that fits with what George Karl wants to do: He runs the floor well, and he shot 40 percent from three last season.

That — and the fact he is popular with teammates, including DeMarcus Cousins was enough to keep him in the fold.

Casspi and the Kings have reached a deal to bring him back, something the player himself confirmed on Twitter.

Marc Stein of ESPN has the contract details.

That’s a good deal for the Kings. Casspi was solid for the Kings last season playing more than 20 minutes a night and scoring 8.9 points a game in the ones where he played. It’s not a game changer of a signing, but it’s a quality, smart one.

The Kings could use this win right now.
