The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Tuesday announced a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for defacing a billboard image of Sacramento Kings forward Omri Casspi with a swastika.

The swastika, painted on the forehead of Casspi's photo, was reported on September 8, the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year."The defacement of Omri Casspi's likeness with a swastika - an ugly symbol of hate – is disturbing and an affront to the Jewish community and the Sacramento community at large, which has welcomed Israeli-born Casspi with open arms," said Dan Sandman, Director of ADL's Central Pacific Region, which includes Sacramento.
