BOSTON (CBS) –  The Boston Celtics announced the signings of center Vitor Faverani and guard Phil Pressey, rounding out a roster that will remain in flux through much of the season.

Per team policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.

The 6-11 Faverani played 23 games for Valencia Basket of the Spanish ACB last season, averaging 9.3 points and 4.6 rebounds over 17 minutes per game. He also appeared in nine games of the Europcup competition, averaging 6.7 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per contest.

A native of Porto Alegre, Brazil, Faverani posted his best statistical season for CB Murcia of the Spanish LEB Oro during the 2010-11 where he averaged 14.9 points and 6.4 rebounds in 22.0 minutes over 34 games.

Pressey was a member of Boston’s summer league team in Orlando this month, averaging 9.4 points and 6.6 assists in 23 minutes per game. Pressey went undrafted in June after spending three years at Missouri, where he was named a finalist for the Bob Cousy award last season — averaging 11.9 points and seven assists per game as a junior.

With Monday’s signings the Celtics currently have 16 players signed for the 2013-14 season, including with forward/center Shavlik Randolph’s non-guarenteed contract, whose deal becomes guaranteed on August 1st. Neither of Monday’s signings are a lock to make the roster, and president Danny Ainge has said that more moves are expected with a surplus of big men and guards currently on the roster.
