Faverani Impressing Celtics’ Brad Stevens
Despite the up-and-down playing time, (Vitor) Faverani has impressed Stevens and seems to be carving out a role.
“Things I (Coach Brad Stevens) liked: What that (Green-Wallace) lineup gave us the opportunity to do. I thought Vitor Faverani was good again. I think he’s had a pretty good preseason,” said the coach. “And I think with his size he’s going to win some time, simply because of the way that he plays, and the way that he’s been able to be effective on both ends around the rim.”
With Jared Sullinger, Brandon Bass and Kelly Olynyk all likely to see a reasonable amount of minutes, Kris Humphries could be impacted most if Faverani earns more time.
