Maine Red Claws TicketsThe Maine Red Claws is a developmental basketball program directly owned and operated by the Boston Celtics that supplies talent to the NBA. Some of the players on the Red Claws' roster are under direct contract with the Celtics, which can recall or send them down during the season. The remaining roster is comprised of NBA free agents who can sign anywhere they want. The NBA Developmental League, as it was then called, awarded the city of Portland with an expansion franchise in 2009. Three years later, the Red Claws became the sole affiliate of the Boston Celtics. In its best-ever stretch of seasons, the Red Claws won the division three straight times between 2015 and 2017. The team also finished top of the conference in 2017 and won its first-ever playoff game. In 2019, the Celtics purchased the franchise outright from its previous founders and owners. Maine Red Claws tickets are available at StubHub, a major source for live events.
