Sam Cassell to Return to Celtics?

According to Sam Cassell, he’s rejoining the Celtics for the 2008-09 season as a backup point guard, and it will be his last season as a player in the NBA. He apparently will then become an assistant coach to Doc Rivers the following season.

Cassell told the Baltimore Sun on Wednesday that he plans to officially sign the contract next week.

“This is my last year playing with the Celtics,” Cassell told the Sun. “Next week, I’ll sign the contract.”

The Celtics did not confirm or deny the rumor.
