Report: Clippers trying to trade for Sam Cassell, pry him out of Washington

Sam Cassell just got done coaching Glen Rice Jr., Otto Porter and the rest of the Wizards’ Summer League team. Before that he helped recruit Paul Pierce to Washington as a free agent.

Now Cassell could be the one lured away.

Doc Rivers is still trying to fill out his Clippers staff after Alvin Gentry and Tyronn Lue were lured away, and he is trying to land Cassell, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

By deal he means trade, once a contract is agreed to. It will take a second round pick for the Clippers to get him as Cassell is under contract with Washington.

Mike Woodson has already agreed to be on the Clippers staff next season. Remember that Cassell was part of the 2008 Boston team coached by Rivers that won the NBA title — and remember that Rivers loves to draw from that 2008 well (or guys who played well against him) to fill out his roster and staff.
