Tacko Time is over.
Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Tuesday that Tacko Fall has signed a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, bringing an end to the 7-foot-5 fan favorite’s time with the Boston Celtics.
Fall, 25, split his first two professional seasons between the Celtics and their G-League affiliate in Maine after going undrafted in 2019 out of Central Florida.
In 26 games with Boston, Fall averaged 2.7 points per game, 2.6 rebounds and 0.9 blocks and shot 74.4% from the floor. A native of Dakar, Senegal, Fall will compete for minutes at backup center in Cleveland with Mfiondu Kabengele and Evan Mobley.
