Boston Celtics’ “Player of the Week” — Jayson Tatum

Let’s not forget the Boston Celtics owned the number one overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. But after a controversial decision, Danny Ainge agreed trade draft selections with the Philadelphia 76ers, who owned the rights to the third overall pick.

The trade would give the Boston Celtics the third overall pick in the draft for the second straight year, along with a future first-round pick. The 76ers would go on to select Markelle Fultz, while the Celtics were able to land the player they had their eyes on throughout the entire draft process… Jayson Tatum.
