From the Red Claws' press release:

Chris Babb: Babb (6-5, 225, Iowa State) joins the Red Claws as an affiliate player after participating in training camp with the Boston Celtics. The former Iowa State Cyclone comes off his senior season where he was named to the Big 12 All-Defensive Team while averaging 9.1 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

Damen Bell-Holter: Bell-Holter (6-9, 245, Oral Roberts) joins the Red Claws as an affiliate player after participating in training camp with the Boston Celtics. The Oral Roberts product earned 2013 NABC 1st Team All District and 1st Team All-Southland Conference honors during his senior season. He holds career averages of 10.5 points and 6.7 rebounds for the Golden Eagles.

Kammron Taylor: Taylor (6-2, 175, Wisconsin) joins the Red Claws as an affiliate player after participating in training camp with the Boston Celtics. Most recently, Taylor played for Neckar RIESEN Ludwigsburg (Germany), appearing in 19 games while posting averages of 13.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists.

No word yet on the other Celtics' camp invite, DeShawn Sims, other than he plans to go to an Original House Of Pancakes this morning:

In other affiliate news, there's the rumor that either the Red Claws and/or the Celtics are looking to sign Romero Osby.  Ainge still has an available roster spot, but he'll probably hold on to it until the trade deadline.  Let's not forget that the Celtics hired Ronald Nored who played under Brad Stevens at Butler to head their player development and will also serve as an assistant coach for the Red Claws.  Maine will be a breeding ground for Boston to development players in Stevens' mold who could play for the big club in the future.
