If the whole NBA player thing does not work out for former Boston Celtics big man Tacko Fall, perhaps he has a future as an NBA insider with the Salt Lake City Tribune’s Eric Walden reporting that the UCF product told him that new Utah Jazz head coach and former Celtics assistant Will Hardy is going to poach the ranks of Boston’s assistants even further by hiring Boston player enhancement coach Evan Bradds.

Fall is with the Jazz on a camp deal to play in Las Vegas Summer League for Utah, now headed by the team president who helmed the Celtics when he first signed with that team in 2019, Danny Ainge. Hardy’s hire brought additional Celtics alumni presence to the new-look Jazz, and that just got even more pronounced with news of the Bradds hire.

Boston managed to rise back to prominence after a long period of stagnation under Ainge and the team rose to contention status under the tenure of Hardy and his former boss, Celtics head coach Ime Udoka.

So, it makes sense for the Jazz to want to bring some of those minds on board to remedy similar circumstances in Salt Lake City.

It remains to be seen whether or not the Celtics alumni can help jump-start what had become a moderately successful but stagnant franchise in the league’s Western Conference, but the haul Ainge just collected dealing away veteran big man Rudy Gobert ought to provide fertile ground on which to try.
