Danny Ainge Still Sounds Pissed Josh Jackson Canceled His Workout

Danny Ainge Still Sounds Pissed Josh Jackson Canceled His Workout”

The Celtics selected Duke forward Jayson Tatum with the third overall pick in the NBA Draft, which all but extinguished trade rumor fires that had been surrounding Boston for days. The 19-year-old was a third-team All-ACC selection, averaging 16.8 points while shooting 45.2 percent from the field. The Sacramento Kings traded picks with the Portland Trailblazers and took UNC forward Justin Jackson No. 15 overall. "They canceled a workout on us when we flew out to Sacramento, and they just chose to cancel it as we flew". "I was all for it". "He really wanted me to go up there and work out for them".

The 6-foot-8 Tatum has the scoring potential that could eventually help defray some of the scoring load from All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas.

By bringing Tatum into the fold, the Celtics add an elite young talent to a team that won 53 games and the top overall seed in the Eastern Conference a year ago. "And if we would have drafted a lot higher, he was the guy that we had circled".

All of this said, Ainge deserves the benefit of the doubt. Tatum figures to be good right away, and could well end up being the best player in this draft - a distinction that could realistically belong to any one of six or seven players a few years from now.

It is the second year in a row Boston has taken a wing player with the No. 3 pick, following Cal's Jaylen Brown a year ago. That quote was relayed to Tatum on Thursday night during his meeting with reporters at the Barclays Center. "Great kid, great work ethic", said Stevens of Tatum. The more I thought about it though, the more I thought it could be the classic instance of a video getting posted that results in a social media mobbing because we don't know the full story. "But I'm glad at how it worked out, so I'm happy". While Tatum is a special offensive player, he might need time to develop his defensive skills since Brad Stevens is a defensive-minded coach. "And that's what we talked about: If you can defend the 1 through the 4, you can knock down open shots and if you can score, that's a bonus". "It's time to compete against him".

"My favorite player right now would be Paul George", Tatum said.

It made Tatum not the compromise, but the best fit for a team that's still in position be a big player in free agency this summer.

President Danny Ainge said his size, length and shot-making abilities were the main reasons the Celtics drafted Jayson Tatum.

Tatum appeared soft-spoken, but was resolute about joining a team coming off an eastern conference finals appearance. "One was just because of ignorance because I didn't really know how to fix that situation that I was in when I got into that fender bender and then the other one was just bad judgment".

Later in the Draft, the Celtics welcomed aboard Southern Methodist forward Semi Ojeleye (37th overall), Arizona guard Kadeem Allen (53rd overall) and Cal-Berkeley guard Jabari Bird (56th overall).

On a big night for both their teams, Boston and Philadelphia fans appear ready to pack the place for Thursday night's National Basketball Association draft.

We saw Jimmy Butler get sent to the Minnesota Timberwolves, reuniting him with head coach Tom Thibodeau and forming a scary front three of Butler, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.
