The third overall pick in the draft had a very exciting Summer League before a foot issue forced an early exit. During six games at Utah and Las Vegas, Tatum averaged 18.2 points and 8.9 rebounds, demonstrating pro-level one-on-one offensive moves that included a deadly step-back jumper and quick drives to the bucket. Supported by 20-year-old Jaylen Brown who often played point guard, the 19-year-old Tatum showed flashes of greatness which underlined GM Danny Ainge’s assertion that had Boston stuck with the number one pick, they still would have drafted Tatum. With Summer League behind him, Tatum must face the bigger issue of where he’ll play knowing that Boston just added free agent star Gordon Hayward. Hayward, Tatum and Brown are all small forwards, so Coach Brad Stevens will need to get creative to make sure all three get valuable minutes. Expect Brown to see time at shooting guard while the 6’8” Tatum plays some undersized power forward. The Celtics lack an obvious power forward starter, so Tatum should expect some small-ball minutes at the four. Newly acquired Marcus Morris could also be an impediment to major minutes for Tatum. It will be interesting to see how Stevens balances the team’s Finals aspirations while attempting to develop his two young stars, Tatum and Brown. The Celtics have arguably the deepest roster in the Association, which will make it difficult for Tatum to see big time minutes during his rookie season.
