Omri Casspi says he is happy to be in Cleveland

Over the weekend, a report came out that Cavaliers forward Omri Casspi (through his agent) had asked to be traded out of Cleveland.

Monday the Cleveland media asked Casspi about it, and of course his answer was basically “I love Cleveland, who wouldn’t?” From the Plain Dealer:

“Of course, I like Cleveland,” Casspi said before the Cavs faced the Bulls at the United Center. “Cleveland has been great to me. The fans, the city, the organization. That’s where I’m focused. I don’t have any other focus but help my team win. Whatever the future holds will happen.”

Of course, that is different than denying you asked for a trade.

Casspi has fallen out of Byron Scott’s rotation, he has barely seen the court in a month. Of course, if he thinks a trade alone solves his problem he is fooling himself — if you can’t earn minutes on the Cavaliers where are you going to get burn?

But he likes Cleveland. So he, Michael Symon and Drew Carey have that in common.
