|Report: Celtics agree to sign Brazilian big Vitor Faverani to a three-year deal||07.15.13 at 4:18 pm ET|
WALTHAM — The Celtics appear to be stockpiling their big men.
On the same day they officially introduced Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans, president of basketball operations Danny Ainge reportedly came to terms on a three-year deal for Brazilian big man Vitor Faverani.
Faverani averaged 9.3 points on 59 percent shooting from the field and 4.6 rebounds in 17 minutes per game for Spain Valencia Basket in the 2012-13 season.
He played also with the Brazil national basketball team. Faverani was just 17 when he started playing for ClÃnicas RincÃ³n AxarquÃa in Spain, a farm team of CB MÃ¡laga. The 6-foot-11 center played in the Liga ACB and LEB Oro leagues. During the 2010’11 season, he won a title in LEB Oro with CB Murcia.
Yahoo Sports Marc Spears was the first to report the deal.
