We continue to wind our way through the Celtics now 14 man roster (RIP to Donte Greene's Celtics career) with our "Camp questions" series. Today we look at Celtics big man Vitor Faverani, and the questions surrounding him as he enters his first camp with the Celtics.
Who is Vitor Faverani?
Faverani is a 25 year-old Brazilian big man who the Celtics signed to a 3-year contract this off-season. He's 6'11", 235 pounds and profiles as a center, although he could also see some time at power forward. He has spent his entire pro career in Spain, including the last two seasons playing for Valencia. During the 2012-13 season, Faverani (who's nickname is "El Hombre Indestructible", or the "Indestructible man") averaged 9.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 17 minutes per game.
His contract guarantees him $2 million this season and $2.09 million in 2014-15. The Celtics hold a team option for the 2015-16 season.
