Report: Celtics to Sign Center Vitor Faverani

After being rumored for weeks, the Celtics are on the verge of adding yet again to their already crowded roster situation. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears, Boston will be bringing aboard Brazilian center Vitor Faverani. The 25-year-old big man played in the Spanish league last season and will help fill in Boston’s front line, that was lacking in depth at the center position behind Fab Melo at the moment.

Danny Ainge spoke on Faverani today at the team’s press conference, but did not indicate a signing had been finalized with the center.

“Vitor Faverani, we are still in discussions with,” Ainge said. “We’ve followed him, we’ve seen him play for a few years.”

Ainge also declined to comment on the playing style of Faverani, electing to wait until if and when a deal is finalized. So what can we expect from the big man, assuming a deal goes through?

Let’s go to the tape!

    Kris Joseph got cut right after this signing. I wondering if we will do this again next summer. Poor KJ.

    I wonder if the Cs have some moves already in mind to clear roster spots. It's getting pretty crowded at the back end. The Kris Joseph cut doesn't even move the needle since he was already in the 16th or 17th spot. It's not looking good for the unguaranteed contract guys right now.

      and Gerald Wallace didn't get revealed as a Celtic today. :O

    Not too bad… it is a highlight tape though. Looks like he works pretty hard. Conditioning and body-type seems like it could use a little work.. definitely an upgrade from unfab melo.
