Report: Celtics Pick Up Jayson Tatum’s $9.9M 4th-Year Contract Option

Bleacher Report

The Boston Celtics picked up Jayson Tatum's $9.9 million option for 2020-21, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium. 

Tatum will now be eligible for restricted free agency in 2021 assuming he turns down a $12.9 million qualifying offer.

Nobody summed up the Celtics' 2018-19 season more than Tatum.

After exceeding expectations as a rookie, the 21-year-old was supposed to take a big leap as a sophomore. Instead, his scoring efficiency went backward. He shot 45.0 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from three-point range, down from 47.5 and 43.4 percent, respectively.
