He averaged 16.5 points and 5.0 rebounds in 69 career games.
The 19-year-old also will get the chance to play against the team that essentially traded him - the Boston Celtics.
Instead, they got a Blue Devil. There were reports this week that the Celtics turned down offers from a Bulls team seeking the No. 3 pick, but Ainge seemed to suggest that was untrue.
All of that was clearly illustrated on Friday afternoon when Tatum met the Boston media at the Celtics training facility in Waltham, roughly 16 hours after Bostonselected the Duke freshman forward with the third overall pick in the National Basketball Association draft. Boston used their third overall pick on Tatum, according to Comcast Sports The six-foot eight-inch nineteen-year-old caught the attention of the Celtics quickly.
"I talked about that with coach Stevens", Tatum said, "and he said, you know, guys at my size and my position that are able to hit open shots and defend 1 through 4, it's hard not to play those guys".
"I know, it's the best night ever", Tatum said. We saw way too many unproven worldwide players taken and the Chicago Bulls finally hit the reset button and blow up their roster, much to the dismay of their loyal fans.
Let's think of the current Celtics roster: We see Isaiah Thomas at the point, Avery Bradley at shooting guard, Al Horford at center, and now Tatum could be set to learn under the forward duo of Jae Crowder and Amir Johnson. It was while they were in the air, however, that Jackson's camp called Ainge to let him know that Jackson was canceling their scheduled workout.
Celtics draft pick Jayson Tatum holds up his No. 11 jersey at the team's practice facilities on Friday. The Mavericks missed the playoffs for just the second time in the past 17 seasons. "He really wanted me to go up there and work out for them, and I was all for it". Stan Van Gundy is thoroughly impressed with Luke Kennard's offensive ability. "When we needed a bucket, [the team gave] him the ball".
"Right now he's just messing with things", the source said of Jackson. "I would have no question putting him in the game offensively now, but defensively, I wouldn't put him in a game right now". "No one in our organization did", Ainge said after the draft on Thursday night. That year he averaged 18.7 PPG and shot 53.8 percent from the floor and 44.1 percent from 3-point range.
- Jimmy Butler. He's a very good player - a star, but not a superstar. "His game is to play with the ball, come off screens, make plays", Van Gundy said. The question is whether he can defend well enough at the National Basketball Association level.
"We were just texting back and forth about who we thought he would go to, who I thought he was going to be drafted by", Graham said. "I think there could have been some deals that were a lot more likely to happen had that not happened".
A rangy athlete regarded as the most NBA-ready scorer in the draft, Tatum was selected after fellow one-and-done talents Markelle Fultz went No. 1 to Philadelphia and Lonzo Ball was picked No. 2 by the Los Angeles Lakers. "This is insane", Ball said in a phone interview. You can't play poker by yourself, I guess you can on your computer but then you never win.
But when news broke last week that the Philadelphia 76ers were trading for the top pick in the NBA Draft, all that changed. He walked across the stage Thursday night at Barclays Center wearing orange sneakers made of basketballs .

White spent three years at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, which is a feeder school to the University of Colorado. While many were impressed with his passing abilities, Ball is also a much better shooter than he his given credit for.
GERMANY: ter Stegen 7, Mustafi 5, Hector 7, Ginter 6, Draxler 6, Goretzka 6, Stindl 7, Can 7, Süle 6, Kimmich 6, Rudy 6. Former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill will reach a century of caps for Australia if he features in the game.
Ideal example of a guy that could fall to seven and become an All-Star and potentially the best player in this draft. The Triangle has churned out eight lottery picks over the last five NBA Drafts , with Duke, North Carolina and N.C.
These Democrats might be on to something, especially in light of the way Pelosi figured into the Republican campaign in Georgia. MOULTON: Certainly one thing I learned as a Marine is - you know, my job description was very simple.
"It should scare every American that the Senate plans to vote on this bill without understanding the true ramifications". The question doesn't distinguish between House and Senate bills, and doesn't identify the effort with a specific party.
That would focus the aid more on people with lower incomes than the House legislation, which bases its subsidies on age. The bill includes misleading "protections" for children by proposing to exempt them from certain Medicaid cuts.
The Sixers are not about to let Embiid go, they have their young core they believe they can contend with in a few years. Oh and they were also forced to throw the 16th pick into the deal just to get it done, which seemed unnecessary.
The latter four were all on hand, making them the first members of the Golden Knights to dawn the brand new grey jersey. The Golden Knights had to take at least nine defencemen, but ended up choosing 13 and added another two through trades.
