Reportedly, Tatum greatly impressed the organization with his final workout for the Celtics and Danny Ainge made it known that he would have taken Tatum at number one if they kept the pick. "A great work ethic, and his parents have done an awesome job of raising this young man".
Duke's Jayson Tatum answers questions during an interview after being selected by the Boston Celtics as the third pick overall during the NBA Draft on Thursday. As just about every GM says, Ainge said he would've taken Tatum at one in the draft. All-Star free agent forward Gordan Hayward has always been linked to the organization ever since Brad Stevens - his coach at Butler - took over.
Kennard, a consensus 2nd Team All-American last season, played two years at Duke, averaging 15.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.
- Jimmy Butler. He's a very good player - a star, but not a superstar.
I'm not going to lie - when I first saw this video - I thought the exact same thing and agreed with Jackson. I'm going to be the best player I can be. Tatum is NBA-ready; Jackson may have the higher ceiling as an elite two-way player.
Markelle Fultz calls selection by Sixers 'unreal'
This is only the fourth time that a team has had the overall No. 1 pick in back-to-back drafts since 1980. The 2017 National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors entered the draft with no picks.
No matter the road Tatum takes in the National Basketball Association, the Duke star will have a strong support system around him. That process begins late next week when Boston's Summer League squad begins to practice.
Fultz said it's the pictures of the things that mean the most to him.
That old saying resonates with the Boston Celtics right now, who have a ridiculous amount of resources but have yet to show anything for it.
"We have a lot of fun", said Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck.
Many players would be overwhelmed by a jam-packed, three-day mini-camp, and rightfully so - it's a lot to handle.
Modi greets nation on Eid-ul-Fitr
Women, especially younger girls, often apply the traditional Mehndi, or henna, on their hands and feet and wear colourful bangles. People forget all kinds of animosity and hatred to accept everyone around as their beloved ones created by the same Almighty.
It became increasingly clear after a couple of days had passed that the Celtics were attached (courtesy of Inquisitr News) to Jayson Tatum.
Tatum's intangible qualities have been well documented by his college coach, the legendary Mike Krzyzewski, as well as by his peers and his observers. "It's unbelievable. I think this process has a high ceiling and I'm looking forward to it", said Mr. Fultz during a Cisco Telepresence Video Call with global media on draft day last Friday. "Everything that he said validated what I'd already heard (about Tatum)". "He really wanted me to go up there and work out for them". "Flew across country, are you kidding me?"
Finally, while some teams have made pre-draft deals, Bilas strongly contended, "Building through the draft is the best way to go".
Commitment will be very important for Tatum over the next few months because the team that he's joining is stocked deep with experienced talent.
Ainge usually comes out on top when it comes to "pulling the wool" over other teams' eyes.

However, North Korea claimed Warmbier contracted the illness and became comatose as a result of taking a sleeping pill. Seventeen months later, he returned to US soil and died after spending most of his imprisonment in a comatose state.
Asked what he planned to do with his newfound riches, Tatum said, "I would love to pay that mortgage out". "Playmaking is an especially important part of the National Basketball Association game now, that having guys like Dennis Smith Jr. that can create simply on their own, and on pick and rolls, pick and rolls with Dirk, is a great blessing for us to have". "As a rookie I can come in and do my work, learn from the guys in the locker room". In the meantime, the rook has some work to do to prepare himself for the National Basketball Association grind.
