Sacramento Kings forward Omri Casspi might head back to play with his former Israeli pro basketball team if the NBA imposes a player lockout next year.


Casspi, the first Israeli to play in the National Basketball Association, told Israel's Army Radio that that he would consider rejoining Maccabi Tel Aviv if the league and the players' union do not come to a new agreement by the June 30 expiration of the collective bargaining agreement, and the 2011 season is cancelled.


Casspi has averaged 9.2 points and 4.7 rebounds per game this season.


According to the Jerusalem Post, even though Casspi is under contract with the Kings, he would be allowed to play abroad in the event of a lockout.
