Boston Celtics buy the Maine Red Claws

The Boston Celtics have reached an agreement to purchase the Maine Red Claws, their NBA G League affiliate, the Celtics announced Thursday.

The teams have been affiliated since the Red Claws began play in the 2009-10 season. In 2012, the Celtics became the team’s sole affiliate, assuming control of all basketball operations. In the Red Claws first three seasons, Boston shared the affiliation with the Charlotte Bobcats and Philadelphia 76ers.

“The Celtics have been great partners with the Red Claws over the last 10 seasons,” said Bill Ryan Jr., the Red Claws chairman and principal owner, in a press release. “We are thrilled that the Celtics will continue to build upon the success we’ve had in making the Red Claws an important part of the Maine community.”
