The Boston Celtics have today announced that the team was signing Fall for the 2019-20 season. According to a report from Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe, Fall has signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the franchise.

In five games for the Celtics’ Summer League team, Fall put together averages of 7.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks while shooting a mind-numbing 77.3 percent from the field.

Fall spent all four years of his collegiate career at Central Florida and averaged 10.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks. Following a very productive college career, the 7’7″ big man went undrafted and ultimately landed with the Celtics with a chance to earn a contract.
