BOSTON The Boston Celtics announced Friday that they have assigned center Fab Melo to their NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
Since his last assignment to the Red Claws, Melo appeared in two games with the Celtics. He played a total of eight minutes in games against the Magic and Lakers, and recording two points with one steal and one block. Melo is a 7-foot center from Syracuse University.
A. Sherrod Blakely and Abby Chin give medical updates on Marcus Smart and Kelly Olynyk.
Less than 24 hours after signing Ryan Kelly, the Celtics waived the power forward.
This is the second time Kelly was put on waivers in the past week, which is how Boston initially acquired him from the Hawks.
Now the door is open for Kelly to sign with Boston's D-League team, the Maine Red Claws, which was the initial expectation when the Celtics acquired him.
