Jayson Tatum named to All-NBA Summer League 2nd team
Jayson Tatum has captured the first honor of his NBA career.
Following an impressive Summer League run in both Utah and Las Vegas, and even though he sat out the final two games of the C’s Summer League slate, the 19-year-old Tatum has been named to the All-NBA Summer League Second Team.
In three games in Utah, Tatum averaged 18.7 points and 9.7 rebounds per contest, while he averaged 17.7 points and 8.0 rebounds in three games in Las Vegas.
Combined, the No. 3 overall pick from the 2017 NBA Draft managed 18.2 points and 8.8 rebounds per contest during his time between Utah and Vegas, while shooting a combined 41-for-92 (a 44.6 field goal percentage) over that span.
A 6-foot-8 versatile wing that’s drawn comparisons to Paul Pierce with his shot and ability to take over a game with key makes, Tatum is expected to play a big role for the Celtics this season, be it off the bench or even as a potential starter as C’s coach Brad Stevens continues to morph his roster into more of a ‘position-less’ system.
