The Boston Celtics will reportedly sign free agent wing Sasha Pavlovic. Posted by Ben Golliver.
After missing out on Corey Brewer, who agreed to sign a multi-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks, the Boston Celtics reportedly turned their attention to free agent wing Sasha Pavlovic.
Pavlovic, who played for the Mavericks earlier this season and was reportedly drawing interest from Dallas as recently as Tuesday, has reportedly "come to terms" with the Celtics, according to CSNNE.com. The site reports that Pavlovic could officially become a Celtic as soon as Thursday.
WEEI.com also reported that "the Celtics are hoping to wrap up a deal with free agent swingman Sasha Pavlovic quickly, according to a source."
The Celtics had opened up two roster spots with their trade deadline moves, but have since filled those spots by signing Troy Murphy and now Pavlovic.
The Celtics next play on Friday night, when they host the Golden State Warriors.
Pavlovic was signed to a 10-day contract by the New Orleans Hornets when Trevor Ariza went down with an ankle injury back in early February.
On the season, Pavlovic is averaging 3.2 points, 1.3 rebounds and .9 assists per game.
