Kelly is likely going to be Boston's 4th affiliate player that will be heading to the Red Claws. Spot opened with the Bentil news. https://t.co/ddiUrh46XQ— Ridiculous Upside (@RidicUpside) October 22, 2016
Kelly, who has since spent time with the Atlanta Hawks this preseason after leaving the Lakers, may be headed to the Maine Red Claws in a type of deal anticipated for Ben Bentil, who has since been released to seek a contract with another team. The Hawks released Kelly after their own roster crunch made his services extraneous, and, given the Hawks lack of NBA D-League affiliate, were unable to offer Kelly the sort of path originally intended for Bentil. It's also possible that Kelly may be planned as salary match for a multi-player deal to get to the regular season 15-man roster limit, though, per team policy, the details of the contract are currently undisclosed.
Check back soon for more details on this developing story.
