Celtics waive Kris Joseph, ending his brief second stint with the team
Well that was quick. Per the Celtics.
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have waived forward Kris Joseph.
Joseph, a 6'7" forward, was originally drafted by the Celtics with the 51st overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. He appeared in 10 games split between Boston and Brooklyn and totaled 11 points and nine rebounds over 54 minutes. Joseph also appeared in 27 games split between the Springfield Armor and the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League averaging 18.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.7 steals in 34.0 minutes per game and was named to the All-NBDL Second Team. He was acquired by the Celtics in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets on July 12.
So Joseph's second stint with the team lasts precisely three days. You knew something had to be up when Danny Ainge said "We're still deciding what to do with Kris" at today's introductory news conference, and now we know exactly what they were planning on doing with him.
The Celtics still have work to do with their roster, as they currently have 17 player with either guaranteed or non-guaranteed deals.
