#2 Tacko Fall appears to have a good chance of making the Boston Celtics roster

Tacko Fall is hoping to make the Boston roster for the upcoming campaign

Several young stars made an impression during this year's edition of the NBA's annual Summer League, although no one received more buzz than Tacko Fall. Standing at 7 ft 7 in, Fall made a big impression over his five appearances, averaging 7.2 points and 4.0 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game.

Despite his impressive showing, Fall is still searching for a permanent home, although Ben Rohrbach of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Fall could still make the Celtics roster.

Fall spent four years at UCF, during which he shot an incredible 74% from the field. However, the 23-year-old was not selected in the 2019 NBA Draft, as teams doubted his ability to make the transition to the NBA. Nevertheless, an impressive Summer League showing has handed the big with a potential pathway to the league.
