Stephen G. Pagliuca, a wealthy private equity investor and co-owner of the Boston Celtics, is putting together a campaign staff as he plots a potential race for the Democratic nomination to fill Edward M. Kennedy's Senate seat, a contest for which he says he is prepared to draw heavily on his estimated $400 million fortune.

Pagliuca is assembling a lineup of policy experts, media advisers, and political organizers and is close to making a final decision to declare his candidacy, according to sources familiar with his deliberations. That announcement could come within the next few days.
