Statement from the Maine Red Claws

January 8, 2021 - NBA G League (G League) - Maine Celtics News Release

PORTLAND, Maine - The COVID-19 pandemic continues to change the landscape of sports, including the NBA and its family of leagues. The NBA G League has decided to move forward with a single-site regular season in Orlando.

Based on that decision, the Boston Celtics have decided to opt out of this optional scenario, and therefore the Maine Red Claws will not participate in the 2020-21 G League season.

While we share in our fans' disappointment that we will not be having a season in Maine this year, we will continue to be active off the court and in our Maine communities. We are grateful to have the best fans and partners in the NBA G League and are excited to continue building towards the future.

We are committed to a 2021-22 season in Maine and the work has already begun. The best is yet to come for Red Claws and Celtics basketball here in Maine.
