NBA Rumors: Jayson Tatum ‘would not mind’ being the face of the Pelicans

Hoops Hype

If the Boston Celtics pulled off a blockbuster trade for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis, it’s very possible Jayson Tatum would be involved.

The Athletic’s Sam Amick reported that the possibility of including Tatum in a deal was “discussed extensively” between the Pelicans and Celtics. That is likely why the Los Angeles Lakers (or another suitor) were unable to make a deal with New Orleans before the trade deadline.

The Pelicans know they must wait until the offseason for Boston to offer the 20-year-old wing (since Kyrie Irving and Davis are both on designated-player contracts and each NBA team can only have one such player on their roster).
