The Boston Celtics have successfully tied up their best player, Jayson Tatum, for a long time.
The home team of TD Garden has reached an agreement with Jayson Tatum to sign an extended contract of maximum value. According to prestigious journalist Adrian Wojnarowski, the extension contract “rookie max extension” has a term of 5 years and is worth $ 195 million.
This is the largest number Tatum can sign and it will keep the 1998-born player in Boston at least until 2025 (the last season will be Tatum’s choice under the Player Option terms). After a somewhat turbulent start, Jayson Tatum made a big leap in the past season (2019-20) when he became the Boston Celtics’ No. 1 star.
Jayson Tatum is a talented NBA star
The second half of the season was when Tatum played the most sublimation, reaching the level of a true superstar before entering the All-NBA lineup. Entering the Playoffs, the more Jayson hit the better. He averaged 25.7 points with 10.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game on the way to the East final in Boston.
In the summer of 2019 when Kyrie Irving and Al Horford left, Jayson Tatum was forced to take on a larger role, carrying the Boston Celtics. Tatum’s frivolousness would have been a problem, but the 1998-born star didn’t have any problems being the team’s superstar.
With what has been shown, Jayson Tatum is evaluated by many experts to have a very large contract. Ultimately, he got it on after professional president Danny Ainge was awarded a “white check”.
Signing a contract worth 195 million dollars, Tatum will become the third player in the group of players selected at the NBA Draft 2017 to achieve this massive contract Rookie Max Extension.
The two previously signed are De’Aaron Fox and Donovan Mitchell with Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz, respectively. Jayson Tatum after the All-Star season and becoming the No. 1 Boston Celtics star was well deserved. He has just agreed to a contract extension worth 195 million dollars in five years.
Tatum’s “fellow” Donovan Mitchell also received a similar offer from the Utah Jazz and agreed. Thus, two of the top 3 players in the top of the Rookie of The Year race in 2018 have been extended with a max contract.
