Buyout limbo

Throughout the 2007-08 season, it had been rumored that Cassell would get bought out of his contract with the Clippers, especially after they let the trade deadline pass without dealing him. Cassell first denied that he was pushing strongly towards a buyout,[2] but eventually acknowledged his buyout talks with the Clippers.[3] On February 26, 2008, it was reported that the Clippers would officially announce the buyout later that day,[4] but that didn't happen, and only some days later the interests of both parties were reported to be far apart.[5] Cassell would have to walk away from all of his remaining salary to receive a buyout, and initially was not ready to do so.[5] But on February 28, 2008, the Clippers reached a contractual buyout agreement with Cassell and placed him on waivers.[6][7] According to the agreement, Cassell received half of his remaining salary, roughly $850,000.[8] The 2007-08 NBA season is the 62nd season of the National Basketball Association. ...

Cassell became an unrestricted free agent on March 3, 2008, 6 p.m. ET, when he cleared waivers, and was eligible to sign with a team of his choice.[9] Although the Dallas Mavericks, Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns were interested in his services,[10] he was strongly linked with a poised move to the Boston Celtics and was expected to be in Boston once he cleared waivers.[9] On March 1, 2008, Cassell's agent, David Falk, confirmed that Cassell would sign a contract with the Celtics for the remainder of the season if he cleared waivers, receiving a prorated amount of the veteran minimum of $1.2M.[11] Cassell has said that he would wear either No. 28 or No. 91 on his jersey,[9] and eventually chose No. 28.[12] In North American professional sports, particularly baseball, football, and basketball, a free agent is a team player whose contract with a team has expired, and the player is able to sign a contract with another team. ... is the 62nd day of the year (63rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) will be a leap year starting on Tuesday of the Anno Domini (common) era, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. ...

Media

Cassell appeared on TNT's NBA Fundamentals series, in which basketball players describe certain aspects of the game.

In this clip,[20] Cassell explains how to post up against opposing guards, shoot pull-up jump shots and hit buzzer beaters.
