As previously expected [1], the Celtics announced rookie Lester Hudson has been assigned to the Maine Red Claws (NBA Development League) on Tuesday.

“He’s on a very good team where it’s very difficult to get minutes, but that hasn’t sidetracked his work,” Doc Rivers told the Boston Herald prior to Monday’s Celtics-Grizzlies game. “We’re going to send him down pretty soon to the NBDL for a week or so to get him some games, because I don’t like our young guys going these long stretches without playing games. And then we’re going to bring him back. I think that will help him.”

Celtics forward Bill Walker was assigned to their D-League affiliate earlier in the season.
