Celtics’ Kris Joseph Traded to Springfield Armor
- Updated: February 10, 2013
The Maine Red Claws have reportedly traded the Celtics 2012 second-round pick (51st overall) small forward/swingman Kris Joseph to the Springfield Armor for power forward James Mays, according to Tim Bontemps of the New York Post.
Joseph cleared waivers and was released last month after appearing in six games for the team, and then was re-signed by the Red Claws, the Celtics D-League affiliate. In twelve games with the Red Claws, Joseph averaged 18.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, and about 1.6 steals per game.
Mays on the other hand, was invited to Brooklyn Nets training camp and cut before being assigned to the Springfield Armor, the Nets’ D-League affiliate. Mays went undrafted in 2008 before signing as an unrestricted free agent with the Denver Nuggets. Mays is having an excellent season so far, and was named to the D-League All-Star team, averaging 16.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 1.2 steals and blocks in 26 games.
The move now allows the Armor to play Dennis Horner as a stretch four instead of at small forward, a position Joseph is also familiar with. Horner’s new position will allow Joseph and Carleton Scott to play on the wings alongside point guard Ben Uzoh.
