LTacko Fall’s adventure with the Boston Celtics is coming to an end. The tallest player in the NBA (2.26 m) and the Cleveland Cavaliers reached an agreement whereby the giant will join their squad with a one-year contract but not guaranteed, according to Shams Charania, a journalist for The Athletic. and Stadium. The Cavs reserve that right to cut the player at any time if they are not convinced by his performance.
In his first two years with the Celtics, the Senegalese giant has failed to keep up with the NBA rhythm, averaging 2.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in the 26 games he played last season. His lack of mobility, speed and even coordination has penalized him, although in Boston he was one of the players most loved by the fans, who cheered him every time he appeared on the court, during the garbage minutes.
The Celtics, however, have grown tired of waiting and, not considering him profitable for their plans, did not exercise the qualifying offer they had on him and let him become an unrestricted free agent. It remains to be seen if Fall is capable of taking a qualitative leap and offering minimal benefits that at least allow him to continue competing in the NBA. Physical is not lacking, but there are many aspects that still need to be polished in his game.
