Tacko Time is over.

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Tuesday that Tacko Fall has signed a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, bringing an end to the 7-foot-5 fan favorite's time with the Boston Celtics.

Fall, 25, split his first two professional seasons between the Celtics and their G-League affiliate in Maine after going undrafted in 2019 out of Central Florida.
