Celtics Cut Joseph, Varnado
BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Celtics trimmed their roster a bit on Sunday night, waiving forwards Kris Joseph and Jarvis Varnado.
Joseph, drafted in the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft out of Syracuse, appeared in just six games for the Celtics. He spent most of his time with the Maine Red Claws of the NBADL, averaging 17.7 points in 10 games.
Boston signed Varnado a few weeks ago to add size to their roster after Chris Wilcox went down with a thumb injury. The 6-9 forward only appeared in five games for the Celtics, averaging 1.2 points in 3.6 minutes per game.
Niether player had a guaranteed contract, but their deals would have become guaranteed if they were still on the roster as of 5pm on Monday.
With the moves the Celtics roster now stands at 13, giving Danny Ainge some room to make additional moves to bulk up his roster.
