Sam Cassell Asks If He Can Get In On Carmelo Anthony Trade

WASHINGTON—Wizards assistant coach and former Houston Rockets guard Sam Cassell reportedly phoned his agent and several NBA front offices Monday inquiring if he could "get in on" the potential three-team deal that would send Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets.

At press time, Cassell was constantly refreshing his e-mail awaiting a response from Stern.
