“They can make $298 million, but with one condition” Jayson Tatum could be one of the highest-earning athletes if he meets the Celtics criteria
Jayson Tatum has made NBA headlines once again during the league’s ongoing offseason. He’s undoubtedly one of the best forwards in the business today and not many in the league can protect him when he’s locked in and ready to go. Throughout his years in the league he has lived up to the expectations of everyone around him, getting better and better as he improved his game. Jayson Tatum already has a deep pocket on offense and is no doubt a lockdown defender as he gave Kevin Durant, one of the top scorers in league history, a tough time to pick up some points and the Boston Celtics even for NBA Finals led.
But unfortunately, the Stephen Curry-led Golden State Warriors were better, getting the job done against the Cs in just six games. Jayson Tatum didn’t really play at his best in the NBA Finals. Confined to one playmaker and closely guarded, he had contested most of his shots. He was also a doubles team, but with all that, he still managed to average 21.5 points, 7 assists and 6.8 rebounds. So there is no doubt that Jayson Tatum is the guy the Celtics want and need as he has the potential and will only keep getting better both physically and mentally.
Jayson Tatum has signed a three-season contract with the Boston Celtics for $195 million. As he signed overtime in 2020, he now has a huge opportunity to secure another big bag and land the biggest deal in NBA history, valued at $298 million. But it’s just not a maximum extension as there are certain conditions JT must check on his to-do list for the upcoming season or he will lose his much-coveted contract.

Jayson Tatum May Be Eligible For Signing $298M Extension
Jayson Tatum secured a spot on the All-NBA First Team last season and whether he can do the same in the upcoming 2022-23 season. He can sign a five-year extension with the Boston Celtics worth $297 million. But unfortunately he will have to wait for another off-season to sign it as he will miss the years of service criteria by a year. So he will have a chance to sign him in the 2024 off-season. But it all depends on how well he plays next season, and he’ll surely need to make the All-NBA team again. So it’s clear that the future of both the person who is a megastar and the franchise is in safe hands.
