Brazilian center Vitor Faverani became the fifth and latest player to join the revolution at Maccabi Tel Aviv on Friday, signing a one-year contract with an option for a second year.
Faverani played for the Boston Celtics in 2013/14, averaging 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds over 37 games. In March 2014, he was sidelined following surgery for a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee, and he hasn’t played a game since. Maccabi gave Faverani a thorough medical last week and offered him a deal after being pleased with the results.
“Vitor is very hungry after a year and a half without a game due to injury,” said Maccabi head coach Guy Goodes. “He likes to play with his back to the basket and can also score from distance. He is very determined and motivated to show that he belongs in the highest level in Europe.”
