Omri Casspi has expressed his excitement after signing with the NBA's Sacramento Kings on Thursday.
The 21-year-old, who was selected with the 23rd pick in last month's NBA draft, will now be able to play for the team in the Summer League after being limited to shooting drills and workouts in the weight room in the first couple of days of the side's mini camp in Las Vegas.
He is expected to see his first action as a Sacramento Kings player on Friday when the team plays its NBA Vegas Summer League opener against the Detroit Pistons.
"I'm very excited to be training with the team," Casspi said. "I'm really focused about getting stronger and faster. I want to go out there and play well and get to know all the players who I'll be playing with next year and also get to know the coach and the system."
Kings Summer League Head Coach Pete Carril said: "Omri didn't practice, but now he's making every shot, and he's a tremendous competitor, which is what we need. Every one looked pretty good today."
On Saturday, the Kings will face the Golden State Warriors in the Summer League.
