Former Celtics center Tacko Fall to join Danny Ainge’s Utah Jazz summer league squad


The NBA’s 2021-22 season saw more than one Boston Celtics-inflected reunion, and the 2022 offseason will see one more. It will not, however, be taking place on the Celtics’ roster. Per Andscape’s Marc J. Spears, former fan favorite big man Tacko Fall will be joining the Utah Jazz’ Las Vegas Summer League.

The Jazz are now helmed by former Boston President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge, with their current CEO the head of the team that signed Fall as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Central Florida in 2019.  With the Jazz thin in their frontcourt after Ainge did his thing, trading center Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves, Fall has a decent chance to play his way onto Utah’s roster as a depth option in their frontcourt.

Since leaving Boston, Fall signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers on a two way deal, averaging 1.1 points and 2.1 points with the parent club, and 23.3 points, 12.5 boards, and 3.0 blocks per game with the Canton Charge, Utah’s G League affiliate.
