The Boston Celtics completed a double signing on Monday, with Brazilian Centre Vitor Faverani and point guard Phil Pressey added to the roster.
At 25-years-old, Faverani arrives from Spain having played for Valencia last season.
The 6-foot-11-inch centre averaged 9.3 points alongside 4.6 rebounds per game last year and is believed to have signed a three-year deal worth around $6 million.
Pressey went undrafted last month, but the 5-foot-11 man impressed as part of Boston's summer league roster, where the point guard averaged 9.4 points and 6.6 assists.
The 22-year-old is seen as a long back up to first choice point guard Rajon Rondo, however could play a crucial role early on as Rondo continues to recover from a torn cruciate ligament.
Boston now have a 17 man roster, meaning they will need to cut three players before the deadline.
