Unconfirmed: Kris Joseph makes Celtics roster, Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith waived

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

An unconfirmed report out of AM radio in Montreal is claiming that Kris Joseph has made the Celtics roster and Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith have been waived.

According to Pete Yannopoulos, an NBA insider from TSN Radio 690 in Montreal, is reporting that the Celtics have waived Jamar Smith and Dionte Christmas and guaranteed Kris Joseph's contract. It hasn't been confirmed by any credible sources in the Boston community or officially by the organization. We'll keep you posted as updates become more available. This refutes earlier reports from A. Sherrod Blakely claiming that Dionte had an "inside track"on the final 15. There has been some buzz that Micah Downs has made an impression on the coaching staff, so it might be possible that he'll earn on of the remaining spots, too.

For what it's worth, Yannopoulos was an assistant coach at UMass and Joseph is from Montreal.
