Now we know why Kris Joseph wasn't at the press conference this afternoon. The Celtics have waived the second-year forward they acquired in the deal that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Nets.

Joseph appeared in 10 games between the Nets and Celtics last season. The Celtics drafted the small forward out of Syracuse with the 51st pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Joseph, who had a non-guaranteed contract, was waived for tax purposes. The team is still approximately $2 million over the luxury tax threshold.
