Cassell in Green?

The Boston Globe reported that according to a Clippers source, the team will announce the buyout on Tuesday. The Celtics, Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets are preparing to make Cassell an offer once he clears waivers in 48 hours, NBA sources indicated, according to the report.

"They've been discussing it, so what more can I say?" Cassell said, according to the Los Angeles Times. "Both parties are getting to a number and saying, 'OK, this is what we'll do it for.' I just want to be treated fairly."

If the Boston Celtics would be able to land Cassell, it would be huge for the team as Eddie House could go back to his original position of playing the 2 (Shooting guard) and Cassell would back up Rondo at the 1 (Point Guard). The depth and veteran experience could rally help the Celtics. It would pay big dividends in the playoffs against Detroit Pistons and Billups as well.
