Sam Was Almost A Maverick

Sam Cassell said he was extremely serious about perhaps becoming a Maverick after he was bought out by the Los Angeles Clippers. Instead, he’s prospering as a Celtic. “There was a real good chance, a real good chance,” Cassell said of his flirtation with the Mavericks. “I’m close to some of the guys on the coaching staff. I know those guys personally. Definitely it was close, but I had a good relationship with guys on this team. They put it out there heavy. “It wasn’t a difficult decision.”
