Ladies and Gentleman, it is finally official after a 10-day contract and 5 summer league games the Boston Celtics have signed Tacko Fall to a contract!!!! Yes the 7′ 7″ big man out of UCF has now signed a contract after his promising summer league performance. The contract details have not been released yet so it is unknown if he was given the last guaranteed roster spot or was he given a partially guaranteed deal. But who cares Danny Ainge added the most marketable player in the NBA because who doesn’t love Tacko. I mean the only way the Celtics could possibly disappoint me now is if Tacko Tuesdays aren’t a thing this season. Also, can we just take a minute to appreciate that Danny Ainge just fleeced the whole NBA by getting Tacko as an undrafted free agent the entire league must be thinking their general managers are just plain dumb now. Just another classic value addition by Danny Ainge. So now that we have our man under contract to quote Vince Vaughn and Dennis Eckersley…
Also in some related news, the Celtics also signed second-round pick Tremont Waters and undrafted free agent Max Strus to two-way contracts and undrafted free agent Javonte Green to an undisclosed deal.
