Sam Cassell To Coach This Season ?

Posted by Mike on October 16, 2008

Maybe the the Boston Celtics won’t be cutting Gabe Pruitt or Darius Miles after all. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that they will make Sam “I am” Cassell an assistant coach this season, and if need be later in the season he could fill a roster spot. This would allow the Celtics to keep all 16 players that they have currently on their roster, and when somebody goes down this season, which will happen Cassell can step-in and play. Celtics coach Doc Rivers didn’t rule out the possibility of this happening when he talked to the Boston Globe:

Guard Sam Cassell, who has a guaranteed contract, sat out last night and has played in only one exhibition. When asked if Cassell could be an assistant coach and not a player when the season starts, Rivers said, “I don’t know yet. We’ll see.” The Celtics have 16 players on their roster and must cut one before the season begins. The only player with a non-guaranteed deal is forward Darius Miles.
