The Boston Celtics have assigned center Vitor Faverani to their NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
"This is just a quick assignment to get Vitor some more game action," Danny Ainge said in a statement. "He'll be back with the Celtics for shootaround tomorrow morning. This is a great option for any Celtics player to get more in-game experience without missing any Celtics activities, and we expect there will be more of this type of assignment for Celtics players during the remainder of the season."
Faverani has averaged 4.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.77 blocks in 13.4 minutes per game for the Celtics this season.
