In the summer, the Boston Celtics may enter into negotiations to an early contract extension with Jayson Tatum. Brian Windhorst of ESPN believed that the Celtics will submit to the 22-Year-old, most likely a max contract.
“If Jayson is Tatum, the Superstar, the Celtics had presented, than you have begun with the Trade of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Rebuilding process, then we could experience again the glorious times for the Celtics”, in praised Windhorst, during a visit to SportsCenter the young Celtics Forward.
In his first three years in the NBA, the 3 put. Pick from the Draft in 2017, an average of 17.2 points and 5.9 Rebounds in the previous season 2019/20 Tatum came on a Career-Highs with 23.6 meters, 7,1 Rebounds and 2.9 Assists in 44.8 percent from the field and 39.8 percent from Downtown. So he made it for the first time into the All-Star Team.
His Rookie contract runs until 2021, but already this summer, the Celtics can negotiate an early extension with Tatum. This could be expensive for Boston. “I tell you, you have to pay him, because when the season is over, he will get most likely a max contract. You are betting on the fact that he is a Superstar,” says Windhorst.
In the past year, Jaylen Brown received a lucrative contract extension in Boston (four years/115 million dollars), what is the Deal for Tatum, too, is still uncertain.
The height of a Max-renewal is based on the Salary Cap, the player gets in such a case, 25 percent of the Salary Caps, plus various bonus payments. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and the threat of financial losses for the NBA, however, is still unsure of how high the Salary Cap in the future.
