The Cleveland Cavaliers agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with center Tacko Fall, his agents — Bill Duffy and Justin Haynes — told The Athletic.

Fall, 25, spent his first two NBA seasons with the Boston Celtics, averaging 2.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 26 total appearances. At 7-foot-5, he became an instant fan favorite in Boston, generating chants for playing time and standing ovations when he entered games.

Fall joins a deep Cleveland front line, featuring Kevin Love, Jarrett Allen, No. 3 overall pick Evan Mobley and recently signed Lauri Markkanen.

With the Cavs, Fall will compete for one of the team’s final roster spots or possibly slot into a two-way contract.
