A week after being released by Cleveland Cavaliers, Omri Casspi appears to have found a new home in the National Basketball Association (NBA).
According to Yahoo! Sports reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, the Israeli free-agent forward has agreed to a two-year deal with the Houston Rockets, which has just boosted its team with superstar Dwight Howard.
A league source told Yahoo! Sports that Casspi's two-year, $2 million deal would include a team option in 2014-15.

The official signing is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, when the NBA free agents market opens.
Casspi played in only 43 games for the Cavs last season, and his average was the lowest in this four-year NBA career with just four points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
Cleveland, which in the summer replaced coach Byron Scott with Mike Brown, had the option of paying $3.3 million and comparing every offer for Casspi, but decided to give up on his services after his disappointing season.
