Celtics grab Jayson Tatum with #3 overall pick in NBA draft

The 76ers will meet Boston at 3:30 p.m. July 11 at the T&M, pitting the No. 1 overall pick against No. 3 pick Jayson Tatum, the 6-8 scoring machine the Celtics took in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft after trading the No. 1 pick to Philadelphia earlier in the week.

That team, of course, is the Celtics, headed in the front office by Danny Ainge and on the floor by bright young coach Brad Stevens.

Tatum knows where he is and what it means. Anybody who knows me, knows I love to win.

"I was mad", Ainge said. "I'm happy to be home".

The party was largely over before the end of the first round, so the fans at Bayside Bowl will have to read about the Celtics' selections in the second round at Nos. "And those teams who didn't draft me, one day they will be sorry".

Danny Ainge and Co. were back in Boston plotting strategy and looking to get back in on the transactional fun they kick-started by sending the No. 1 overall pick to Philadelphia. "No one in our organization did", Ainge said after the draft on Thursday night. As always seems to be the case, nothing came to fruition. He's been injured often in recent years, but is one of the league's most explosive players when healthy.

"Jayson's skill set and work ethic will make him a star with the Boston Celtics", Krzyzewski said.

Mason averaged 20.9 points, 5.2 assists and 4.2 rebounds in his final season at KU and appeared in 36.1 minutes per game, the highest total of any player in the Bill Self era. He was one of five finalists for the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year Award. "I think if I become a bigger, or a stronger player physically, it will help me".

As Ainge will admit, Tatum is not almost a finished product. He needs to work on his outside shot, but also has the chance to be an elite defender in the National Basketball Association.

NY is conveniently located between both cities and 76ers fans have made the trip here frequently over the last couple years as their team has had high picks - including the No. 1 choice the last two years.

Phil Jackson coached Scottie Pippen, a fast, slender, 6-foot-8 perimeter player blessed with terrific court vision and defensive instincts.

"I definitely have to continue to get better and working on my game but just for the opportunity, I don't think it was given, I think I earned it".

"I thought it was an OK season", Brown told Express Sport.

Stevens is meticulous when getting familiar with players. "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". As time went on and they got older, they got team chemistry and now look at them. "There's a lot to like about Jayson". Ainge said he was upset about the last-minute cancellation, but that they didn't hold it against him.

Asked what kind of person he is, Jackson said, "I'm a humble guy". Drafting him would give the Celtics 3 SF that should play (Tatum, Crowder and Brown). The Celtics, who traded the top pick to the Sixers and moved down to No. 3, went with the Duke guard, whose scoring ability fits what Boston needs. Boston had hoped to work out Jackson on Tuesday, but the workout never happened.
