With an open roster spot in mind, the Celtics today agreed to trade player/coach Sam Cassell to the Sacramento Kings for a conditional second round draft choice. Cassell makes the veteran minimum so the Celts aren’t saving much money but it seems as though the team is freeing up a roster spot in order to make another move before Thursday’s trading deadline. Cassell hasn’t play a minute all season but does have a technical foul to his credit.
My Take: I think this move shows that not only are the Celtics planning to make a move which could help the team down the stretch but that they have a lot of confidence that the trio of Rajon Rondo, Eddie House and Gabe Pruitt can handle the point guard position. It’s possible we see Joe Smith (who was just traded today to the New Orleans Hornets) or Stephon Marbury come to Boston in the next few days, only time will tell.
