CLEVELAND, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) - The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly signing center Tacko Fall to a two-way contract, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported late Saturday morning.

Fall, one of the NBA's - and the world's - tallest players (listed at 7-foot-6), was brought in by the Cavs back in September after spending his first two NBA seasons with the Boston Celtics, who signed Fall as an undrafted free agent out of UCF in 2019.

In 26 career NBA games, Fall has averaged 2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds per game, as well as 1.1 blocks per contest.

Fall will be eligible to appear in up to 50 NBA games while spending the remainder of the season with the Cavs' G-League affiliate Cleveland Charge.

JD Shaw of HoopsRumors also reported Saturday that the Cavs were also signing RJ Nembhard to a two-way contract.

Nembhard, 22, was, like Fall, an undrafted signee by the Cavs, out of TCU followingthe 2021 NBA Draft. Nembhard averaged 15.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists as a senior with the Horned Frogs.
