The Cleveland Cavaliers, as first reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania, are waiving center Tacko Fall from his two-way deal and signing guard Brandon Goodwin to his slot.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are waiving two-way center Tacko Fall and signing guard Brandon Goodwin to a two-way contract, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.

Fall, signed by the Cavs before the season, appeared in 11 games for the team his year at the NBA level and in one game for the Canton Charge in the G League.

Goodwin was signed by the Cavs to a 10-day hardship exemption deal while the team was dealing with multiple players in the health & safety protocols. He only appeared in 3 games, but impressed in the minutes he did play. He averaged 7.3 points and 4.7 assists in his minutes.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the COVID-related roster shortages faced by many teams, two-way players no longer have a limit they can spend at the NBA level. For Goodwin, that means he’ll likely settle in as a guard depth for the Cavs behind Darius Garland and Rajon Rondo. It will be worth watching if he is ahead of Kevin Pangos in J.B. Bickerstaff’s rotation if/when the team needs to play a third point guard.
