Celtics reassign Hudson to Red Claws

The Celtics [1] reassigned rookie Lester Hudson [2] to the NBA Development League’s Maine Red Claws, the team announced on Saturday. This will be Hudson’s second D-League stint this season. He was assigned to the Red Claws earlier this month and averaged 16.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.7 assists in three games.

‘€œI learned a lot,’€ he previously told WEEI.com [3] about his first assignment. ‘€œI learned a lot about the pick-and-roll, team defense. Those were things my coach, (head coach) Doc [Rivers [4]] and (President of Basketball Operations) Danny [Ainge] told me to work on so I tried to work on that and I think I got a little better at that. I’€™ve just got to work hard on every possession. I got in a little better shape because I was playing a lot of minutes in those three games, so I’€™m going to try not to get out of shape.’€
