Shams Charania: The Cleveland Cavaliers are signing 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall to a two-way contract, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Fall earned deal out of Cavaliers training camp.
Chris Fedor: Tacko Fall, a source tells @clevelanddotcom, will be receiving a camp deal from #Cavs. Similar to Thon Maker last year. Fall will come to camp and compete for one of the final roster spots or a two-way contract. (Now I’m getting back to my vacation).
Shams Charania: The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with 7-foot-5 center Tacko Fall, agents Bill Duffy and Justin Haynes of @BDA Sports told @TheAthletic @Stadium. Fall played his first two NBA seasons in Boston.
If two-way player Tacko Fall remains with the organization through free agency, he would join the team as well. Fall has continued his summer training program at the team facility, even though he is now a restricted free agent. The Celtics only have Rob Williams, Moses Brown and Tristan Thompson under contract at the five spot, as well as Grant Williams who functions as both a forward and center.
Shams Charania: Free agent Tacko Fall has signed a two-way contract with the Boston Celtics, sources tell @The Athletic @Stadium.
Michael Scotto: The Boston Celtics have extended qualifying offers to Tacko Fall and Tremont Waters. Both were two-way players for the Celtics last season. Now, they will become restricted free agents.
Tacko Fall: Who are your top 5 basketball players of all-time? There's no way I can pick 5, there are so many. From the old school guys, I'm a big fan of Kareem, Bill Russell, Hakeem, Dikembe, Tim Duncan, LeBron…
The Celtics believe that with further development Fall could become an NBA contributor. But it’s unclear if they want to keep a development project on the roster. That’s where things become tricky. Fall signed an Exhibit 10 contract, meaning he will receive a $50,000 bonus if he is waived and agrees to then join the Maine Red Claws. But Fall’s agent, Justin Haynes has insisted that Fall will be picked up by another NBA team before that happens, and that has been reiterated to the team recently, league sources said.
But Fall does not want to settle for that route. He is trying to make Boston’s final roster, and because the team waived forward Guerschon Yabusele last month, he should at least get a chance. “If the Celtics release him, I don’t think he goes unclaimed,” said Haynes, Fall’s agent. “I think somebody will take a shot on him because he’s done enough to show he can find a place in the NBA. I’m really hopeful that it’s Boston. I hope they find a way, and they do have a vision for him.”
Adam Himmelsbach: Per source, Tacko Fall’s deal is still an Exhibit 10 contract, just as he originally agreed to shortly after the draft.

Aaron J. Fentress: Damian Lillard (abdomen) and Nassir Little (ankle) will each miss several games. Lillard is out at least 10 days while Little is out at least a week. All of those days of “no injuries to report” or having one guy down screamed that bad luck was around the corner for #RipCity
