LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Sam Cassell is leaving the Washington Wizards after five seasons as an assistant coach to join the Los Angeles Clippers staff, CBS Sports reports.

The move has been rumored for several months now, but several media outlets are reporting that the move is official. An official announcement is expected next week.

Cassell spent his last season as an NBA player in Boston, where he won a title under Rivers.

Cassell is credited with helping to develop Wizards guards John Wall and Bradley Beal. The Clippers are a more veteran team, with Reggie Bullock and CJ Wilcox being the only young prospects on the roster.

Cassell will surely play a role in their development, and this also could be a step toward him eventually becoming a head coach.
