Celtics Assign First-Round Pick Fab Melo, Second-Round Pick Kris Joseph to Maine Red Claws
The Syracuse teammates -- both of whom appeared in the preseason -- will get a chance to get work with the Celtics' minor league affiliate.
Melo (7-0, 215, Syracuse) was also selected in the first round, 22nd overall, by Boston in the 2012 NBA Draft and appeared in eight preseason games with the Celtics, scoring two points and grabbing ten rebounds in 47 minutes.
Joseph (6-7, 210, Syracuse) was selected in the second round, 51st overall, by the Celtics in the 2012 NBA Draft and appeared in one preseason game for Boston.
Both players are expected to join Maine today and participate in the teams’ training camp. The Red Claws tip off their 2012-13 season at the Los Angeles D-Fenders on November 30.
