- As reported a couple weeks ago, Cassell has expressed an interest to join Boston if the Clippers decide to waive him. That would give the Celtics even more depth to a bench that most felt was going to be the team's achilles heal at the start of this season.

If the Clippers end up waiving Sam Cassell, he's expected to land in Boston. But the Celtics might not want to take a chance that Cassell remains with the Clippers or is acquired by another team. Unfortunately, the Celtics don't have any major assets they are willing to move, so a meaningful trade is not likely.
