Fall’s deal is nonguaranteed, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania, who first reported the news.
Fall, 25, is 7-foot-5 and spent his first two seasons with the Celtics. He was the tallest NBA player last season and is among the tallest known people in the world.
He appeared in a total of 26 games in 2020-21, averaging 2.7 points and 2.6 rebounds. Most of his time was spent in the G League, where he blocked nearly 4.0 shots a game.

The signing of Fall is likely on a tryout basis, as the Cavs currently have 14 players under contract. But Fall could be headed to the G League with the Cleveland Charge.
“The Cavaliers have no shortage of big men, especially after the sign-and-trade for Lauri Markkanen, but Fall could be a solid insurance policy, given the injury concerns between Markkanen and Kevin Love,” Cohen wrote.
