Marc J. Spears: Brazilian center Victor Faverani has agreed in principle to sign a three-year deal with the Celtics, a source told Yahoo! Sports. Twitter @SpearsNBAYahoo
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
