Boston Celtics select Jayson Tatum with No. 3 pick in draft

25 June 2017

If, after leaving the first round of the Draft with Philadelphia, the Celtics seemed destined to select Josh Jackson in the number three position, they may have a hard time. "I would love to play in Boston".

"Coach K talked to me - we talked a lot during this process, but I think it was like right after they traded the pick", Tatum explained in a press conference at Barclays Center after being drafted.

Jayson Tatum was picked third by the Boston Celtics, becoming the first player off the board from a Triangle school, and at least six more players from Duke, North Carolina and N.C. State expect to hear their names called before the end of the night.

After that, it wasn't clear who would go where.

Hoyer said about the 2018 midterms, "I think we can win back the House, I really believe that". She's also credited for many legislative successes on Capitol Hill .

Jackson has previously canceled his workout with the Celtics, which was scheduled for June 12.

Apparently, the Celtics would have received all the necessary medical documentation from Jackson, which precedes any private practice of a player prior to the Draft.

"In spite of that, we watched Josh for two years and we were fans", Ainge said. He's a terrific kid and good player.

Boston's attempt at working out Jackson went horribly wrong. The Suns used the fourth pick to select him then added Miami guard Davon Reed at No. 32 and 6-foot-9 power forward Alec Peters of Valparaiso at No. 54. He needs to work on his outside shot, but also has the chance to be an elite defender in the National Basketball Association.

"It would be great to play in Boston", Jackson told reporters on Wednesday.

Jackson, more physical but with worse shot and attacking resources than Tatum - here our analysis of our predictions of the Draft 2017 -, could be giving up his future as a "celtic" of his own free will.

Despite not having had a chance to speak with Jackson or getting to work him out, Ainge said the Celtics still had not ruled out drafting him.
