It’s not going to be easy for Fall to find a spot in the Cavaliers’ frontcourt rotation. Just re-signed Jarrett Allen will start at center, but just-drafted Evan Mobley and just traded for Lauri Markkanen can play some small-ball five. Kevin Love is in that mix somewhere.

Fall played in 26 games over two seasons with Boston, the first one as a two-way player. He averaged 2.7 points and 2.5 rebounds a game, but that was primarily in garbage time for the Celtics.

Still, Fall is going to get his shot. That’s all he can ask.

And Tacko Fall will have a lot of Cavaliers fans rooting for him.
