The Boston Celtics have said good-bye to Montreal native Kris Joseph for the second time this year.

Joseph, who was acquired by the team in the recent deal with the Brooklyn Nets which saw Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce move to New York, was originally drafted by the Celtics with the 51st overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Partway through last season he was cut loose by Boston and he spent some time in the Developmental League before catching on with Brooklyn.

He appeared in 10 games last season 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.
