Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum has extended the agreement with the club for $ 195 million for five years, according to insider Adrian Voinarovski
Tatum has received the full maximum renewal for newcomers in the 2017 draft. Taking into account the bonuses for the representatives of the symbolic NBA fives, Tatum’s total salary could reach $ 200 million. Last season Tatum helped the Celtics reach the Eastern Conference final, where the team lost to the Miami Heat (2-4). After relegation, the player could not answer the question about the contract.
“I don’t know what will happen with my new contract. It is difficult to answer this question now. I didn’t even think about it, I was focused on the season and not on the contract. The management and my agent will discuss this. We just lost the streak. All I think about now is about the guys in the locker room and the match, ” Tatum said.
Earlier, Utah Jazz attacking guard Donovan Mitchell received a similar extension.
