The Sacramento Kings have acquired veteran guard Sam Cassell from the Boston Celtics for a conditional second-round draft pick in 2015.
The 39-year-old Cassell hasn't played this season for the
Celtics, who acquired him in early March before their run to the
NBA title. He essentially served as another assistant coach this
season with Boston, which also sent cash considerations to
Sacramento in the trade.
The deal on Tuesday also decreases Boston's luxury tax
obligations for the season.
The Kings, who have the NBA's worst record at 11-43, didn't
immediately announce whether Cassell would join the team or be
released. Sacramento hosts the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night.
Cassell has won three NBA championships during his 16 seasons in
