Boston Celtics: Maine Celtics relaunch crucial for development

After not having G-League representation down in the Lake Buena Vista bubble for what was a shortened season, the Boston Celtics have announced a rebrand for their minor league Maine affiliate.

No longer the Maine Red Claws, the C’s G-League team will now go by the Maine Celtics.

Boston will now join the Knicks, Warriors, Spurs, Bulls, Lakers, Magic, Kings, Nets, and Clippers as teams with G-League teams bearing the same logo.

The Celtics didn’t send their developmental squad down to central Florida for the shortened season and the development of the bottom of the roster likely suffered as a result.
