Tacko Fall’s agent confident his client ‘can find a place in the NBA’ even if Celtics releases him
7-foot-6 rookie Tacko Fall has put the idea of being undrafted behind him, and although he signed a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Boston Celtics, a lot of fans believe that he has a legitimate shot of making the team’s opening night roster.
However, the Celtics have already signed a couple of two-way players and their roster has 15 guys with at least partially guaranteed deals. Boston could stash Fall into their G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, but if they do that, he could be claimed by another team.
Fall’s agent, Justin Haynes told Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach that he believes his client belongs to the NBA, and should the Celtics decide to part ways with him, he will not stay a free agent for long.
“If the Celtics release him, I don’t think he goes unclaimed. 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.”
Fall has already shown a glimpse of what he can do in Summer League. He has the potential to be a great two-way player. However, with the current situation of the Celtics’ roster, there’s a legitimate shot that he might find himself wearing another team’s jersey this upcoming season.
But if the Celtics find a way to keep him, Fall will definitely work hard to prove that not only is he NBA-ready, but also NBA-worthy. After all, his perseverance is one of the main reasons why he’s on the brink of making it to the NBA.
