Still without salary-cap space to attract major free agents and with a roster that will undergo more changes before training camp, the Celtics made two more additions Monday, officially signing Brazilian big man Vitor Faverani and guard Phil Pressey to guaranteed contracts.

Neither player appeared in Boston’s plans a month ago.

Faverani is a 6-foot-11-inch center who played last year for Valencia Basket Club of the Spanish ACB League, averaging 9.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in 17 minutes in 23 games. He was eligible for the 2009 draft but was not selected. He has been on the Celtics’ radar for years and the deal is believed to be three years at $6 million.
