The Boston Celtics announced this afternoon that they are sending center Vitor Faverani to Portland for a stint with the Maine Red Claws. In a statement issued on Celtics.com, Danny Ainge explained the reason for the move:
"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 has averaged 4.5 points, 3.5 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per game for the Celtics this season.
