Source: Celtics expected to sign Sasha Pavlovic

Having missed out on top target Corey Brewer [1] who will sign with the Mavericks, the Celtics [2] are hoping to wrap up a deal with free agent swingman Sasha Pavlovic [3] quickly, according to a source.

Pavlovic played 10 games with the Mavericks and four with the Hornets this season. The 27-year-old saw action in 71 games with the Timberwolves [4] last season and was a part-time starter with the Cavaliers [5] for four seasons before that. He’s 6-foot-8 and can play both the off guard and small forward positions.

Pavlovic’s best season was in 2006-07 when he averaged nine points a game and made over 40 percent of his 3-pointers on a Cavs team that advanced to the NBA finals [6]. He adds depth behind Paul Pierce [7] and Ray Allen [8] and will probably compete for playing time with Von Wafer [9].
