SIXERS ASSISTANT SAM CASSELL AT TOP OF LIST FOR CELTS TOP JOB!

By Jerry Wein

Bleacher Report has rated the frontrunners for the Celtics head coaching job, and Sixers assistant Sam Cassell (above right with Doc Rivers) is at the top of the list:

He finished his career as a player with the Celtics in 2007-08, and he landed his first job as an assistant with the Washington Wizards in 2009-10.

He’s been an NBA assistant ever since, with stints with the Los Angeles Clippers and currently the Philadelphia 76ers.

He may not have the head coaching experience of Pierce or Kidd, but that’s an extensive history of NBA coaching on the heels of a 15-year playing career.

Cassell also won three titles as a player, including one with Boston, where he was a backup guard on the team led by Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce.

As someone who’s been exposed to decades of NBA basketball, under the influence of various head coaches, Cassell would bring a wealth of experience to a young Celtics roster.
