Kris Joseph: Ex-Syracuse star reportedly sticks with Celtics

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Former Syracuse forward Kris Joseph has reportedly made the Boston Celtics roster.

Former Syracuse Orange forward Kris Joseph has made the Boston Celtics 15-man roster according to multiple reports. The Celtics waived rookies Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith on Tuesday, leaving room for Joseph to make the team.

The Celtics selected Joseph with the 51st pick of the 2012 NBA Draft after his four-year career at Syracuse. Joseph has played sparingly in the preseason for the Celtics, averaging 2 points and 1.3 rebounds in just under seven minutes per game.

At Syracuse, Joseph made the All-Big East First Team during his senior season in 2011-12. Joseph led the Orange in scoring, averaging 13.4 points per game. He also contributed 4.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.4 steals per game as the leader of an Orange team that went 34-3 and 17-1 in the Big East before falling in the Elite Eight to Ohio State.

Many expected Christmas to make the Celtics roster instead of Joseph, but the Celtics released Christmas amid an up-and-down preseason.
