Faverani assigned to Claws

The Vitor Faverani D-League shuttle continues.

Faverani was assigned Tuesday to the Maine Red Claws of the D-League. The Claws are scheduled to play Delaware this evening, which means Faverani could be en route after the Celtics traveled to Philadelphia area in advance of Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens has pledged to keep getting Faverani game reps in the D-League in order to keep him fresh for when game reps at the NBA level might increase.

Faverani, a 6-11 rookie center, has appeared in three games for the Red Claws this season and has averaged 16.3 points, 12 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.3 blocks in 31.3 minutes per game. In 37 games for the Celtics this season, Faverani has averaged 4.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 13.2 minutes per game.
