Former Syracuse star Kris Joseph was part of a blockbuster deal between the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics that sent future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn.
Originally, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Reggie Evans, Keith Bogans (via sign-and-trade), Joseph, and three first round picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018 were being sent to Boston. SNYNets later reported that MarShon Brooks, and not Evans, was included in the trade.
Garnett, Pierce and guard Jason Terry were sent to Brooklyn.
Joseph was originally taken with the 21st pick of the second round by the Celtics in the 2012 NBA draft and made the team, although he was cut on Jan. 6. The Nets picked up Joseph, and eventually signed him through the 2013-14 season. He appeared in 10 games in his rookie year, averaging .9 points and .7 rebounds per game.
Joseph also spent time in the NBDL with the Maine Red Claws before being dealt to the Springfield Armor.
Joseph was a four year player at Syracuse, and left as winningest player in school history with 119 wins. Joseph also scored 1,476 points and was named First Team All-Big East in his senior season.
