For weeks now, rumors have swirled about Sam Cassell possibly joining the Celtics. Even though Doc Rivers and upper management have tried their best to diffuse them, everyone knew that both parties were interested. Now, we know that at least one party is desperate to make this work.
Sam I Am is officially offering his services to Boston, and actively praying that super-agent David Falk can work something out with his current team.
“I’ve earned enough,” said Cassell, on his willingness to accept a buyout. “I’ve saved a little money. I put money away. I just want to win. Winning is the most important thing to me.”
“I think it’s realistic. It’s matter of just time. I don’t want to say too much. I’m optimistic about the whole situation. That’s why I got David Falk. That’s what he loves to do.”
Sam, of course, plays for the notoriously stingy Donald Sterling. In other words, a buyout is far from being guaranteed. David Falk, though, is no slouch. Should be an interesting next few days.
