Jayson Tatum agrees to a five-year, $195M extension with the Celtics

All-Star SF Jayson Tatum has agreed to a five-year, $195M extension with the Boston Celtics.

Fantasy Impact

It’s the full designated rookie max extension for Tatum, who can make up to $200M with incentives. The fourth-year forward became a superstar right before our eyes last season, averaging 23.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.4 steals, and 0.9 blocks per game. Tatum is deserving of a top-10 selection in fantasy basketball leagues this season.

Jayson Tatum flirts with triple-double as Celtics lose series to Heat

Jayson Tatum recorded 24 points (9-26 FG, 3-10 3PT, 3-4 FT), seven boards, 11 assists, two steals, one block, and two turnovers in Sunday's defeat to Miami.

Fantasy Impact

His shooting was tough to watch tonight, as he shot a mere 34.6% from the field. But he did stuff the stat sheet, and was able to dish out a career-high 11 assists. Despite the loss, Tatum was magnificent these playoffs, consistently putting up all-around strong numbers. He's still somehow only 22 years old, and should continue improving with time. Mark him down as a surefire top two round pick in fantasy drafts next season.
