Kris Joseph just can't seem to stick with the Celtics. On Monday, he was released by Boston for the second time in six months.

The 6-foot-7 forward was originally drafted by the Celtics with the 51st pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. He played in 10 games between Boston and Brooklyn, totaling 11 points and nine rebounds over 54 minutes.

Joseph also appeared in 27 games between the Springfield Armor and the Maine Red Claws of the NBADL. He averaged 18.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.7 steals in 34.0 minutes per game, and he was named to the All-NBDL Second Team.

He was re-acquired by the Celtics in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets that was made official on July 12.
