CS: Ok, then… Raúl Santos asks us whether you think that you will have chemistry with Rajon Rondo. Vitor Faverani: Well, I have not had the opportunity to work with him because he is recovering from his knee injury. I had a first contact, not with the head coach but with his top assistant, who is training me and was with Rondo this week. Every time they talk about Rondo is amazing, spotting his pick and roll play. I love setting screens, you can ask my former teammates because they stopped me last year because it was almost hurting them, so if he is the player I believe he is, we will get along very well. He loves sharing the ball and has incredible passing skills, and I love setting screens to free him, so that he can decide to finish with a shot or a pass. It is up to him. CelticsSpa

How were the workouts with the Celtics and what were your impressions while you were doing them? Vitor Faverani: Of all the teams I worked out for, Boston was the one that convinced me more of the possibility of playing there. And it was because of the way they treated me. I was used of the way people treat you in Spain: they talk to you, they are kind, they are smiling, they make jokes all the time...and in Boston I felt home right away. They greeted me and from the first moment there is someone in the organisation, Austin, that talked to me in Spanish. We were talking for a while and then they treated me as if I was already playing for them. We did the medical check up and I started thinking that it wasn't normal that they were treating me so well. It was unbelievable. ' CelticsSpa

The Celtics said that you made a very good impression in your workouts and the fact that you convinced them too after that experience. When did you know that you had agreed to play with the Celtics and what was your reaction? Vitor Faverani: I didn't know about it until right at the last moment. All the rumors that surfaced and everything that was told in the media...at that moment I had nothing with them yet. I had told my agent not to tell me anything about the possibility of signing with a good team unless there was a clear chance to do it because i didn't want to get dissapointed if it finally didn't happen. So I told them to call me when literally there is a contract on the table and I will sign it. So basically I knew about the chance to be a Celtic when they sent me the contract. I had to actually read it to check if it was real or not (laughs). CelticsSpa

The Celtics were in discussions yesterday with Vitor Faverani, a 6-foot-11 Brazilian center who played last winter for Valencia of the Spanish League. However, contrary to international reports, the talks were far from complete. The main sticking point appears to be that the 25-year-old big man, who has played in Spain since he was 17 and is also a member of the Brazilian national team, is under contract. A buyout, something the cost-conscious Celtics are loath to do, would be involved. Boston Herald
