On this day: Howell, Siegfried and Bryant lost in ’70 expansion draft

By Justin Quinn

On this day in Boston Celtics history, the team would lose three players to the 1970 NBA expansion draft. The draft — the fifth expansion draft in league history — was held to populate the rosters of three new teams joining the NBA, the Buffalo Braves (which would one day become the Celtics, but that is another story), Cleveland Cavaliers, and Portland Trail Blazers.

Former Celtics point guard Emmette “Em” Bryant would be drafted by the Braves after just two seasons with Boston between 1968 and 1970, with whom he won a championship in 1969, the Celtics last until the mid-seventies. The Chicago native holds the distinction of being one of the only players in NBA history to have been selected in multiple expansion drafts after having been selected from the New York Knicks by the Phoenix Suns in the 1968 expansion draft as well.

Bryant averaged 6.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game in his two seasons with Boston.
