Sacramento Kings forward Omri Casspi said he might rejoin his former Israeli pro basketball team if the NBA imposes a player lockout next season.

Casspi, the first Israeli to play in the National Basketball Association, told Israel’s Army Radio Thursday 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, which could lead to the cancellation of the 2011-12 season.

Casspi has been sitting on the bench lately for the Kings. He has averaged 9.2 points and 4.7 rebounds per game this season. 

Although Casspi is under contract with the Kings, he would be allowed to play abroad in the event of a lockout, The Jerusalem Post reported.
