Report: Jayson Tatum agrees to max extension with Boston Celtics

Jayson Tatum is the third member of the 2017 NBA Draft class to reportedly agree to a max extension.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Tatum will sign a five-year extension with the Boston Celtics that guarantees him $163.0 million.

Like De'Aaron Fox and Donovan Mitchell, the two other members of the 2017 NBA Draft class who have agreed to max extensions, Tatum's extension could end up being worth $195.6 million

The No. 3 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Tatum is coming off of a breakout season in which he earned his first All-Star selection with averages of 23.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. Tatum led the Celtics to a 48-24 record, good enough for the third seed in the Eastern Conference.

Tatum took his game to another level in the playoffs to the tune of 25.7 points, 10.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. The Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round and the Toronto Raptors in the second round, eventually coming up short against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Following the playoffs, our NBA.com Staff ranked Tatum as the 10th-best player of the 2019-20 season.
