Regardless of where he plays, it appears the basketball world can’t get enough of Tacko Fall. The former UCF sensation just finished playing in the Summer League, and the seven-foot-six center showed he can be effective at the next level.
Fall averaged 7.2 points and 4.0 rebounds per game in the Summer League. As you’d expect, everyone couldn’t help but talk about his ginormous stature.
While Fall has a long way to go before making the official roster for the Celtics, it does sound like the front office has confidence in him.
Danny Ainge, the general manager and president of basketball operations of the Celtics, spoke to NBC Sports Boston about Fall. He revealed whether or not he’ll be given the opportunity to stick with the team for next season.
“I think Tacko’s going to have a chance to make the roster,” Ainge said.
It’s far too early to determine if Fall has a strong chance of making the season-opening roster. However, it’s great to see that he’ll be given the chance.

Boston doesn’t have much depth at center, which opens the door for Fall to remain with the team.
In the event he doesn’t stick with the main roster, the Celtics could decide to let him develop on their G-League affiliate.
Do you think Fall will be on the Celtics when the season starts in October?
