By   |  5 Comments

The Maine Red Claws, the Boston Celtics and Charlotte Bobcats NBA Development League affiliate, will be holding open tryouts on October 3 at UMass-Boston.  As many as three players will be selected to receive an invitation to participate in the Red Claws training camp this November.

Red Claws head coach Austin Ainge and the Red Claws basketball operations and support staff will evaluate the tryouts, where athletes will participate in team drills, individual skills work, and scrimmages.

‘€œThis will be a tremendous opportunity for players to showcase their talent to the Red Claws’€™ coaching staff and possibly earn a spot at the Red Claws’€™ training camp in November,’€ Red Claws President and General Manager Jon Jennings said in a team-issued statement. ‘€œBy basing the camp in Boston, players from throughout the region will have an opportunity to come to the tryout. New England has an exceptional basketball tradition ‘€“ our hope is that among those who attend the tryout, we will find a future Maine Red Claws’€™ player or two.’€

Tryouts are limited to the first 125 applicants to complete their registration form and submit their registration fee ($150 in advance or $200 at the door) . Registration forms can be downloaded at www.nba.com/dleague/maine/tryoutsnortheast.html.

The Red Claws will also hold open tryouts on September 12-13 at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina. Information is available at www.nba.com/dleague/maine/Tryout_Charlotte.html.

All participants must meet the D-League player eligibility requirements stated on the registration form.

Wright has yet to make a splash in the pros and many speculated that he should have stayed past his freshman year. But Wright, 21, is happy to be learning the ropes with the Warriors and enjoys growing up in the NBA.

‘€œYou have all these grown up responsibilities to take care of but I made a decision (to leave UNC) and I’m not regretting it or anything like that,’€ Wright said. ‘€œI’m enjoying myself. I think it would have been good both ways.’€
