Celtics set to re-sign Pavlovic
The ninth-year swingman joined the Celtics in early March and stayed on the roster for the remainder of the season (though he did not appear in the playoffs). In 17 regular-season games, he scored 31 total points in 149 minutes of action (19 of which came in the finale against the New York Knicks when he connected on four 3-pointers).
Celtics coach Doc Rivers often implored Pavlovic to play with more confidence and maybe a solid showing in that regular-season finale was enough to sell the Celtics on bringing him back. He adds depth on the wing, something the Celtics were thin on last season after Marquis Daniels went down.
Now the Celtics have Daniels, Pavlovic, Jeff Green, and Paul Pierce to play the swingman position.
