Boston Celtics fans are getting more Tacko.

The Celtics converted 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall's contract to a two-way deal, the team announced Sunday.

Fall initially signed what was reported to be an Exhibit 10 contract with Boston after going undrafted in June.

The Senegal native will now continue under the Celtics' umbrella into the season and will spend the majority of his time with the franchise's G League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws. He'll be limited to up to 45 days of service at the NBA level this season.

Fall fared well for the Celtics during summer league, averaging 7.2 points, four rebounds, and 1.4 blocks in 12.6 minutes per game across five contests. The UCF product has been a fan favorite during Boston's preseason, with fans calling for him to enter games with loud chants and standing ovations.

NBA teams can have a maximum of two players on two-way deals at any time. The Celtics opened a spot for Fall by upgrading Max Strus to a standard NBA contract earlier Sunday. Guard Tremont Waters is also on a two-way deal with Boston.
