Celtics Waive Kris Joseph

One of the five players acquired by the Celtics in their trade with the Nets has already been released. The Celtics announced today in a press release that they've waived Kris Joseph.

For Joseph, it's the second time in the last year that he has been cut by the Celtics. The team drafted him in the second round of the 2012 draft, but elected to release him last season before his '12/13 contract became fully guaranteed. Boston is doing the same thing this year — Joseph's deal was set to start becoming guaranteed if he remained on the roster beyond August 1st.

Joseph, 24, had been a part of the Nets/Celtics blockbuster for salary-matching purposes. Assuming he isn't claimed on waivers, the former Syracuse forward figures to seek out a training camp invite with another NBA team for the fall. Failing that, he could return to the D-League, where he earned All-NBDL Second Team honors last season.
