As the season of NBA speculation continues, Boston Celtics All-Star Jayson Tatum could be spending his off-season doing a bit of recruiting for his storied franchise.
Through an overreacting lens, Tatum’s recent Retweet on social media caused a stir Saturday afternoon when he posted a goat emoji accompanying Ballislife.com’s video of Sacramento Kings center Harry Giles’ high school highlight reel. Some viewed the All-Star’s tweet as a potential hint for the Celtics, a team that’s in the market for help in the frontcourt and could certainly use a boost at its center position.
For those wondering the obvious: yes, Giles is an unrestricted free agent. Coming off of his rookie-scale, a three-year contract worth roughly $2.2 million per, with the Kings, Giles averaged 6.9 points, 4.1 rebounds in 14.3 minutes last season for Sacramento.
Giles, who played alongside Tatum at Duke in 2016-17, was a five-star recruit before uniting with the soon-to-be NBA standout in Durham, North Carolina.
