One Brazilian big man is never enough. The Celtics found that out last season, when rookie Fab Melo dominated the D-League with the Maine Red Claws but was never able to make an impact in Boston. Now the C’s may take another shot with a different Brazilian behemoth.
Vitor Faverani and the Celtics are “talking” about a deal, the Boston Herald reports, although it is uncertain how close they are to an agreement. Also, it appears Faverani has a buyout situation with his current club in Spain, which could lessen the Celtics’ interest. The Celtics would only be interested in Faverani if the price is not too great, obviously.[tweet https://twitter.com/Murf56/status/354672839988756481 align=’center’] [tweet https://twitter.com/Murf56/status/354685432627335170 align=’center’]
Faverani, 25, went undrafted in 2009 after playing with a Spanish farm team in Velez-Malaga, Andalusia. The 6-foot-11, 260-pound Faverani is listed as a power forward. He has played for a variety of Spanish teams in the last eight years, most recently with CB Murcia of the Liga ACB.
