Cassell considered the Mavs ... kinda

Sam Cassell informs us that had he not signed with Boston, he would have landed in Big D.

“If I wasn’t coming here,” Cassell said, decked out in Celtics gear for the today’s shootaround, “I was going to Dallas.”

Boston Globe beat man Marc J. Spears quickly chimed in: Wasn’t Phoenix also on the list? Cassell quickly changed his tune, admitting the Suns were in the mix, along with a “couple of places.”

Always a media favorite, it seems Cassell was just playing along for the Dallas types. Count on Sam I Am doing the same act in each NBA city that was after his services.

But when it came to choosing Boston, Cassell did say: “It was an easy decision.”

The Mavs did fill their backup point guard need with Tyronn Lue.
