Sam Cassell is a Celtics

The Boston Celtics announced that they have inked Sam Cassell.

Cassell, a 6'3", 193 pound guard, is in his 15th season in the NBA. Cassell was averaging 12.8 points and 4.7 assists in 25.4 minutes per game this season for the Los Angeles Clippers in 38 games. The former All-Star has appeared in 115 career post-season games and has posted career averages of 13.6 points and 4.9 assists in his playoff career. Cassell has posted career averages of 15.9 points, 6.0 assists and 1.07 steals in 976 career games.

For Kevin Garnett's fans like me this is a big boost up for the line up. Imagine the Celtics first five Rondo, R. Allen, Pierce, KG and Perkins and now they have a solid 2nd unit to back them up Cassell, House, Posey, PJ Brown and Pollard. I just remembered the Minnesota Timberwolves last playoff days when KG, Cassell and Spree are part of the big three and they almost made it to the finals. Now that Cassell is part of the well beef up Celtics no one as is no one will stand on their way. Good luck LA Lakers, Phoenix Suns, San Antonio Spurs, Detroit Pistons and Kings James Cleveland Cavaliers because Boston will prevail.
