Report: Tacko Fall, Cavaliers agree on one-year deal

The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with center Tacko Fall, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Fall, 25, spent his first two seasons in the NBA with the Celtics, averaged 2.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 26 total games played. The 7-foot-5 fan favorite in Boston, was on a two-way contract the past two years and was eligible for a third and final go-around with the team before deciding to go their separate ways.

With the Cavs, Fall will compete for a roster spot despite a deep frontcourt of Kevin Love, Jarrett Allen, the No. 3 overall pick in July's NBA Draft Evan Mobley and the recent addition of Lauri Markkanen. He could also possibly slide his way into one of Cleveland's two-way contract slots if all else fails during training camp.

Fall, who would generate chants from the home crowd at TD Garden and standing ovations whenever he would enter games, will be missed.
