THERE’S a new towering attraction in the NBA next season.
Tacko Fall has signed a deal with the Boston Celtics after making a solid impression in the Summer League.
The 7-foot-6 University of Central Florida product went undrafted in the last NBA Draft, but earned a spot on the Celtics Summer League team and averaged 7.2 points on an efficient 77.3 percent from the field, 4 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks in five games.
The 23-year-old slotman from Senegal highlighted his Summer League play by tallying 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting and grabbing eight boards against Memphis.
The Celtics announced the signing as well as that of 2019 second-round pick Tremont Waters, Max Strus, and Javonte Green. Waters and Strus signed two-way contracts.
