Celtics Assign Faverani to Maine Red Claws

BOSTON – The Boston Celtics announced today that they have assigned center Vitor Faverani to their NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.

"This is just a quick assignment to get Vitor some more game action. He'll be back with the Celtics for shootaround tomorrow morning. This is a great option for any Celtics player to get more in-game experience without missing any Celtics activities, and we expect there will be more of this type of assignment for Celtics players during the remainder of the season," said Danny Ainge, Celtics President of Basketball Operations.

Faverani, a 6’11” center, has averaged 4.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.77 blocks in 13.4 minutes per game for the Celtics this season. He recorded a high of 13 points against Toronto on October 30 and recorded highs of 18 rebounds and six blocks against Milwaukee on November 1.
