Israeli NBA player Omri Casspi is headed back to his former team, Maccabi Tel Aviv, according to a report from the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Tuesday.

Casspi, who was drafted by the Sacramento Kings two years ago, was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers at the end of last season. He has not yet played for the team due to a labor dispute in the NBA that resulted in the lockout.

Maccabi has already benefited from the lockout, during which a number of NBA players have signed temporary contracts to come play for EuroLeague teams. Maccabi's roster has already been bolstered by two-time NBA champion point guard Jordan Farmar.

Farmar, who is Jewish, was playing for the New Jersey Nets until he landed in Tel Aviv as a result of the lockout.
