It appears that the newest Brooklyn Net will be Kris Joseph, who had been playing on the Nets’ D-League affiliate the Springfield Armor. Joseph will take the open roster spot left after Josh Childress left the team and Joseph will be eligible to participate in the playoffs. Kris will likely join the team in Cleveland on Wednesday.
Joseph, a former Boston Celtic, was acquired by Springfield in a D-League trade earlier this season. He has been starting and playing well for the Armor, averaging 19 points and 4 rebounds in 15 games. Joseph will also be the Nets’ third international rookie, joining Mirza Teletovic and Toko Shengelia. Kris is from Montreal, Quebec.
Joseph was selected with the 51st pick in last year’s draft by Boston. This season, he has appeared in 6 games for the Celtics, scoring 7 points on 2/11 shooting in 24 total NBA minutes.
It is unlikely that Kris Joseph will get much playing time with the Nets. The main reason for his call-up was to give him some time with an NBA team and to see if he could be a player who could make the Nets’ roster next season. Expect him to be sitting on the bench in a suit for most of the remaining Nets games this year.
