Tacko Fall is one of the tallest NBA players with a height of 7-foot 7-inch who plays tremendous basketball. While playing for the Boston Celtics this Summer League, Fall impressed everyone in the team. It is still not clear whether the Celtics will sign him for a long term deal or not.
The Celtics have signed Fall for an Exhibit 10 contract, but there is no guarantee that Fall will get a chance in their final roster for the NBA 2019-20 season. The journey of Fall has been amazing in the world of NBA and his recent contract indicates that the Celtics might give him the last spot in their roster.
Tacko Fall needs to Work Hard
Boston Celtics initially offered Fall a non-guaranteed Exhibit 10 contract while he was still undrafted in the NBA lottery. Tacko then played all the five games in NBA summer league 2019 for the Celtics and performed incredibly well. He had an average of 7.2 points and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting 77 percent from the field.

It impressed the Celtics’ general manager Danny Ainge and other coaching staff so much that they signed him in their team. Even though Fall has been training with the Celtics staff and players, his place is not a hundred percent fixed. There is still one spot open in the Celtics roster and Fall needs to work hard for that.
Other Team Deals
Tacko Fall has a tough challenge ahead and he is working hard and practicing at the center position. On the other hand, Fall’s agent is not much worried about his client’s future. He believes that even if the Boston Celtics release Fall after the training camp, they might have him back very soon.
If the Boston team doesn’t claim him, he might be unsold this year. But it doesn’t mean that other NBA teams won’t offer him a new deal. Fall will have a better future with the Celtics and we hope that it works out.
