7-foot-6 Tacko Fall is an NBA Summer League sensation

7-foot-6 Tacko Fall is an NBA Summer League sensation”

The Celtics have waived Guerschon Yabusele.

CelticsBlog.com posted an article Wednesday afternoon debating whether Boston should bring Fall aboard the regular-season roster, which was met with plenty of opinions. The Celtics are moving on from Yabusele and eating his money assuming no one picks him up on waivers (which seems unlikely when he would be a minimum-salary pickup after the fact). The 7-foot-6 center has had a strong summer league for the 3-0 Celtics.

Boston originally selected Yabusele 16th overall in the 2016 NBA Draft. Only Jaylen Brown remains on the Boston roster. However, Boston has reportedly already used their two two-way contracts on Tremont Waters and Max Strus, so the open spot could go to a veteran player.

This move could open the door for Tacko Fall to grab a roster spot. But it's unrealistic that Fall would make almost the same impact in the National Basketball Association, so it would still be a bit of a surprise if they granted him a spot on the 15-man roster.

The Celtics might be content to patiently examine potential trade possibilities with a goal of adding more proven talent, the open roster spot allowing the acquisition of an additional player should the team need that spot in an uneven swap. Of course not. It's just the more realistic avenue for Danny Ainge at this point.
