NBA Lockout Update: Cleveland Cavaliers' Forward Omri Casspi Wants Union To Decertify

The NBA owners are currently waiting on the players to review their latest offer for a CBA deal and end the lockout. Common conjecture around the league is that the deal will be rejected, and players are understandably frustrated by the whole process. 

The latest player to wear his feelings on his sleeve is Cleveland Cavaliers' forward Omri Casspi, who took to his Twitter account to express his displeasure with the owners' negotiation tactics, urging the union to decertify

"If the NBA claim loses of 300mil dollars, why they aren't opening the books to the players and letting us see it?" Casspi wrote.

"I know that it won't be good for the nba that the court will make them open the books and we all find out that there's big difference.

"I think it's time for us to give the NBA deal that we like and put the pressure on them. #decertify" wrote the NBA's first Israeli-born player.

Anthony Parker is the Cavs' representative who will travel to New York next week with the other player reps to decide whether or not to accept the owners' proposal.
