Nets call up Kris Joseph from the Springfield Armor

Joseph will be playing for his second NBA team as he comes to the Nets, as the Boston Celtics draftee was sent to the Armor–and the Nets organization–back in February in exchange for James Mays
 

Yesterday, news came out that the Nets finally filled out their 15th and last roster spot–a spot left open when the team released Josh Childress in December–by calling up forward Kris Joseph from the team's D-League affiliate in Springfield, the Armor. Joseph, who is eligible for the playoffs, gives Brooklyn a pretty big body (Joseph stands at 6'7") who probably will be inactive most nights, but also provides the team with a talented scorer who can fill in, in a pinch, for any injured players. 

The move further shows the Nets commitment to utilizing the scores of talent in the D-League–and their unique relationship with the Armor–to supplement their big-league roster.
