The Boston Celtics formally announced the release of training camp invites Micah Downs and Rob Kurz on Friday, officially trimming their roster to the opening-day capacity of 15 players. The pair had not been spotted at practice this week and the announcement had been expected, particularly after Kris Joseph was told after Wednesday's practice he had made the 15-man roster. It will be interesting to see if either Downs or Kurz lands with the Maine Red Claws of the D-League.

Danny had some nice things to say about the guy that did make the roster - second rounder Kris Joseph.

"Well, Kris is a great kid. He has high character. He works very hard. He's very athletic, and he does things that you can't teach with his athleticism, and I think Kris is going to be a kid that will spend a lot of time developing this year, probably won't get a chance to play, unless there's injuries, much, but we think that he has a big upside."

Enjoy Maine Kris!
