What is expected is being fulfilled. As soon as the elimination of Boston 4-3 against Miami in the Eastern Conference finals was confirmed, talk began about the changes that the greens had to undertake in order to take the final step towards the ring. Among the options, the possibility of making changes to the squad has been discussed, but what was almost certain is that the work team of the head coach, Joe Mazzulla. Well, said and done.
As reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic, Sam Cassell has reached an agreement to join the Celtics coaching staff under the direction of Joe Mazzulla. Cassell, once one of the best point guards in the NBA, has spent the past three seasons as the 76ers’ top assistant under Doc Rivers. Now, he returns to a team he knows, having been part of Boston’s roster that won the ring in 2008.
Returning to his coaching experience, he began his career in 2009 as an assistant to Flip Saunders at the Washington Wizards. After five seasons in the United States capital, he moved to the Clippers in 2014 as an assistant to Doc Rivers. When the latter left for Philadelphia in 2020 as head coach, Cassell accompanied him.
