The Boston Celtics summer league team is going to be must-watch for basketball fans.
The C's could have three of their 2019 NBA Draft picks -- first-rounders Romeo Langford and Grant Williams, as well as second-rounder Carsen Edwards -- participate in Las Vegas, but the most intriguing player on Boston's roster might be Tacko Fall.
ESPN's Jonathan Givony reported Friday the undrafted free agent will sign an Exhibit 10 contract with the Celtics.
Tacko Fall will sign an Exhibit 10 contract with the Boston Celtics, a source told ESPN. Pencil in July 8th at 430 at Thomas and Mack for your first TACKO Vegas Summer League fix.— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 21, 2019
The 7-foot-6, 310-pound center played four seasons for the University of Central Florida. He averaged 11.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game for the Knights during the 2018-19 campaign. C's fans might remember Fall from the 2019 NCAA Tournament, when his UCF squad nearly upset Zion Williamson and Duke in the second round.
If he makes the roster in the regular season, Fall would become the tallest player ever to suit up for the Celtics, surpassing 7-2 Bruno Sundov, who played 26 games in 2002-03.
The Celtics will open summer league play July 6 against the Philadelphia 76ers.
