Moments after being knocked out by the Heat in the Eastern Conference final, Tatum was asked if he had ever thought about his possible contract extension

Tatum, who became an All-Star in his third year in the league this season, can sign a maximum contract extension for up to five years that is expected to be worth $ 158 million this offseason, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN

It was reported by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst in June that the Celtics would ‘very likely’ give Tatum a maximum extension. Later that month, NBC Sports Boston A Sherrod Blakely reported that Tatum was’ leaning towards »Sign a maximum extension when eligible

Celtics will only have a certain amount of time to sign Tatum for a rookie contract extension In previous years, the window for teams to sign players for a second contract extension was when the schedule for the league for a new season starts in July until shortly before the first regular season game in October

Ahead of the start of the season, the Celtics signed Jaylen Brown to a four-year, $ 115 million contract on October 21, the league’s deadline for rookie contract extensions

With uncertainty over the start of next season, it’s unclear how much time the Celtics and Tatum have left to strike a deal

Although the situation is complex and there are several million dollars at stake, Tatum has stressed that he is only focusing on the end of season loss.

We just lost this streak, ”Tatum said“ I just think about the guys in that locker room and the game That’s what I think about Stuff like that when it happens, if it happens, it’s not not really my concern, I don’t really think about that

« I really think of the great season, the great players, the great guys I’m with It was a hell of a year and I enjoyed it It was fun I’m not ready to think about other things for the moment «
