How to make a box follow an animated sphere?

I animated a sphere doing crazy stuff. Now I want the box to simply follow that sphere. I could parent it, but I don't want to render the sphere, only the box.

1) I tried to parent the box with the sphere, but when I set the sphere visibility to 0, the box disapears too.

2) I tried to add a transparent material into the sphere, but the lights on mental ray are rendering weird shadows on the scene...

Is there another way?

Sorry on the english, not my primary.

you could use a point constrain or simply copy all the keys on the sphere and paste them to the box
