Sam Cassell’s first appearance in town as a Celtic was brief. He passed his physical and exchanged the necessary paperwork on his contract — but headed to the airport afterward.
Cassell is returning to Baltimore to attend funeral services for a family member. He will not be with the Celts either Wednesday or Thursday.
Obviously, condolences to Sam and his family I'm as anxious as anybody to have Sam in uniform, but his family obligations are more important right now.
UPDATE: It's finally official : "The Boston Celtics announced today that they have signed guard Sam Cassell. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed."
