Doc Rivers is Mum About Landing Sam Cassell


As far as Rivers is concerned, Sam Cassell doesn’t exist. When asked what he thought of the Clippers point guard (who will be in town tomorrow night), Rivers replied, ‘He’s been hurt, right? Livingston.’ The response was clever, considering the rumor mill has been cranking out scenarios, including the Clippers buying out Cassell and the 14-year veteran possibly landing in Boston. Without Shaun Livingston and Elton Brand, both of whom are injured, the Clippers are the Clippers again, 14-30 and at the bottom of the Pacific Division. Cassell, who played with Garnett in Minnesota, is averaging 13.9 points and 4.5 assists, both below his career averages. Click here for more from the Boston Globe.
