Ever since impressing the NBA in the first two months of his rookie season with the Sacramento Kings, Cleveland Cavaliers' forward Omri Casspi has struggled mightily with his play. Casspi has struggled to make shots, make plays, and find minutes over the past couple of seasons. Even with a Cleveland Cavaliers' team that has been desperate for solid wing play over the past couple of years, Casspi has been unable to find any sort of foothold in Byron Scott's rotations. The partnership between Casspi and the Cavs could be headed to a close, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com. Stein reported the Cavs and the fourth-year player are potentially working on a buyout to allow him to join a team before Friday's playoff eligibility deadline.
