After two seasons with very low playing time in Boston, Tacko Fall will test the value of his 226 centimeters with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Tacko Fall had become a mascot with the Boston Celtics. At each garbage time, the TD Garden audience roared to ask Brad Stevens to offer a few minutes inside Mali of 2.26 m. Each basket, each against of Fall was applauded and greeted with a rather sympathetic jubilation. But in the end, we still do not know if Tacko Fall has the level to play in the NBA, since he has only 25 games to his name in two years, with 6 minutes of average playing time.
We may find out next season, far from Boston. Fall has signed up for a season, on an unsecured contract, with the Cleveland Cavaliers. If he passes the cut after training camp, the 25-year-old pivot may then be able to integrate the interior rotation of the Cavs, which currently feature Jarrett Allen, rookie Evan Mobley, Lauri Markkanen, Mfiondu Kabengele and … Kevin Love, who does not want a buy-out but therefore has no guarantee of playing time.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with 7-foot-5 center Tacko Fall, agents Bill Duffy and Justin Haynes of @BDA_Sports told @TheAthletic @Stadium. Fall played his first two NBA seasons in Boston.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) September 1, 2021
