Sam Cassell is leaving the Washington Wizards after five seasons to take an assistant coaching position with the Los Angeles Clippers, people with knowledge of the situation confirmed Saturday.

A reunion with Rivers has been rumored for several weeks, with the Clippers losing assistants Tyronn Lue (to Cleveland) and Alvin Gentry (to Golden State) this offseason. According to people familiar with the situation, Cassell will receive a huge boost in pay but Washington was reluctant to let him leave for what was perceived as a lateral move. A call from Rivers helped convince the organization to let Cassell free. An official announcement is expected next week.
