The Celtics selected Kris Joseph with their second-round pick of Thursday's NBA Draft, wrapping up the night with two Syracuse Orangemen set to don Celtic green.

Joseph will join the C's first-round pick Fab Melo on the roster along with Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger, meaning that the Celtics addressed their need for size in a big way on draft night.

Joseph averaged 13.8 points and 4.9 rebounds during his senior season in 2011-12 and was a four-year player at Syracuse. The 6-foot-7 forward was the 51st selection in the draft.
