Omri Casspi is on the move once again.
After being waived by the Pelicans at the end of February, the former Kings forward is reportedly close to a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
News of the two sides being close to a deal was first reported by ESPN.
Casspi was part of the trade that sent DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway.
He appeared in just one game with the Pelicans. He played 24 minutes on Feb. 23, but broke his thumb and was waived two days later.
In 23 games between the Kings and Pelicans this season, Casspi is averaging 6.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists.
The Timberwolves are schedule to play in New Orleans on Sunday night.
