Hours after missing out on Corey Brewer, the Boston Celtics reached an agreement Wednesday night to sign Sasha Pavlovic, according to a report by Steve Bulpett in the Boston Herald. The signing is expected to become official on Thursday, says CSNNE.com's Sherrod Blakely, with Pavlovic ready to play Friday night against the Warriors.
The move would give Boston added depth on the wing (even after trading for Jeff Green), and comes a day after signing Troy Murphy. It also fits with GM Danny Ainge's plan, indicated before Wednesday night's game with the Suns: "Our next step is to shore up our perimeter, try to find another wing."
Pavlovic, a career .406-percent shooter who is in his eighth season, is a plan B (C?) of sorts after the Celtics missed out on signing Corey Brewer, who opted for the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday.
He made a name for himself on the Cleveland Cavs from 04-09 and since then has bounced around from Minnesota to New Orleans to Dallas. He's played in just 14 games this season, four on the Hornets and 10 on the Mavs.
