The Maine Red Claws have traded the rights to Morris Almond to the Iowa Energy in exchange for Iowa’s 2013 2nd round draft selection. Almond spent the 2011-12 and 2009-10 seasons with the Red Claws.

“Mo was a very good player for us over the last two seasons, and we thank him for his time and effort,” said Boston Celtics Director of Player Personnel Austin Ainge. “We have a number of wing players on the team right now that are very close to making the NBA, and we take our commitment to their playing time and development very seriously. We wanted help Mo find a situation where he can continue to do the same. We wish him continued success and again thank him for his contribution to the Red Claws.”
