It's Official! – Maine Red Claws Announce NBA Affiliations

RedClawsYou knew it was coming, and thankfully the Maine Red Claws, the new NBA Development League (D-League) team based here in Portland has finally announced the team will be affiliated with two parent clubs, the Boston Celtics and the Charlotte Bobcats of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Great news for one as fans will be able to enjoy the development of young prospects with hopes of joining the home town favorite Boston Celtics, and the possibility that certain players with the parent club now can be sent to work on their skills in Portland with the Maine Red Claws throughout the long NBA 82 game season (the D-League plays 48 games).

Also, the Charlotte Bobcats being a fairly new team in the NBA, have a rather young team and continue to draft young talent to develop, which should be great for the fans here in Portland. Both the Celtics and the Bobcats have great management, coaching, and former NBA stars working on the staffs of these teams in Michael Jordan, Doc Rivers, and Danny Ainge to name a few. Word has it that you might just happen to see one of them, or a former Boston Celtics great at an upcoming game this season. Keep your eyes and ears tuned as the inaugural season for the Maine Red Claws promises to be one to remember!
