Both players are expected to be in uniform when Maine hosts Iowa.
This is Pressey's first D-League assignment in his NBA career, but a chance for game reps after a tightened rotation has seen him log three DNPs over Boston's last four games. Dawkins, on a second 10-day contract with Boston, has appeared in four games for the Red Claws since he was signed to his first 10-day contract on Jan. 23. He is averaging 20 points per game while shooting 37.7 percent beyond the 3-point arc.
Pressey will also help fill the void at point guard after Maine's Tim Fraziers, who spent training camp with the Celtics, was signed to a 10-day contract by the Philadelphia 76ers. Frazier had recently been named a D-League All-Star.
