Celtics prospects will be travelling a lot less

Redclaws That's because instead of going about 2,400 miles between Boston and Utah… they'll be going about 100 miles north to Portland, Maine. 

Today, the Maine Red Claws announced, officially, that they'll be affiliated with the Celtics and the Charlotte Bobcats

I think this is great news because it allows fans much easier access to some of the young guys.  I know a lot of our own readers will be able to swing by a Red Claws game and check out someone like Giddens, Walker or Hudson… and we'll be able to get first-hand reports about how a certain player is doing.

    Hopefully this becomes a trend among other teams and basketball can resemble more of the baseball team farm structure– I don’t think we will see affiliate teams in 3 different farm leagues (A, AA, AAA), but to at least have full affiliations and not split affiliations will be nice.
    Being from Maine (and now living in Boston), I was little bit embarrassed at the fact that all of the mascot possibilities revolved around lobsters, but I think the logo works pretty well and I’m fairly happy with the name Red Claws after it’s had a chance to settle.
    The big question: what on earth will their jerseys look like?!?!?

    Are there any other East coast teams in the NBDL? Otherwise road trips will all be cross country.
