Celtics To Sign Sasha Pavlovic, Miss Out On Corey Brewer

According to CSNNE.com’s A. Sherrod Blakely,┬áthe Celtics have come to terms with Sasha Pavlovic on a contract for the rest of the season. The team was originally after young swingman Corey Brewer, but he opted to sign with the Dallas Mavericks, who offered him a multi-year deal.

Pavlovic, who has played 14 games this season with the Mavs and Hornets, gives the Celtics depth at the 2 and 3 behind Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, a dire need for the team. He gives the team a veteran body with good size (6’7″) that can hit threes and play solid perimeter defense.

“We have Delonte (West) and he can play the two, but he’s a little smaller,” said Danny Ainge. “We’d like to be able to play a little bigger guy.”

The Yugoslavian native had his best season with the 06-07 Cavs team that made the NBA Finals, averaging 9.0 points per game and 40% from long distance. He has averaged 5.4 points and 1.9 rebounds over the course of his career.

When (if?) the team gets fully healthy, Pavlovic will likely be one of the last men off bench.

The Celtics have one more open roster spot, but CSN’s A. Sherrod Blakely said on TV that Ainge may pursue players for 10-day contracts as opposed to signing players for the rest of the season. If that’s the case, free agent Leon Powe will be going elsewhere, likely to Miami or New York.
