Shortly after the conclusion of last night's 101-97 preseason finale victory over the Nets the Celtics let go two of their training camp invitees, Damen Bell-Holter and Kammron Taylor. Both players logged less than 10 minutes of total game action over Boston's eight exhibition contests. CSNNE's Jessica Camerato shared quotes from each upon hearing the news:
"I'm just going to go home for a couple of days, evaluate everything, and figure out what I'm going to do this year. I'm going to weigh options. Apparently they want me to do D-League, and it's looking like that. I'm going to keep working. I got good reviews that I was professional and showed good work ethic. I learned about being a true professional, handling everything like business, I learned a lot from the veterans and the older guys."
"Tomorrow I'll talk to my agent, go over a few options. I know the D-League affiliate is an option. I want to go wherever I have the best opportunity to further my career and provide for my family. Whatever the best option is, then I'm going to go with it. I got a chance to see how NBA guys train, I got to pick the brain of an NBA All-Star point guard (Rajon Rondo), one of the best in the game. I got to be part of a great franchise and how everything operates at an NBA level, as far as competition, travel, the lifestyle. It was a good experience."
For the time being the C's other two unsigned players, Chris Babb and DeShawn Sims, are still on the roster. However the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett did send out this tweet last night:
Celts plan is to keep just their 14 guaranteed contracts, one shy of roster max. Still on tight salary cap/luxury tax grounds.
