Jayson Tatum has reportedly landed a historic deal.

The Boston Celtics player will now have more than one reason to celebrate. Most recently, the team became the 2024 NBA Champions, outplaying the Dallas Mavericks. This marked the 18th championship title for the Boston Celtics, ESPN reports.

Tatum scored 31 points, 11 assists, and eight rebounds for the game-five victory. He joins Stephen Curry, Michael Jordan, James Worthy, and Walt Frazier as the only players to have scored 30 points and 10 assists in a series win for the NBA finals, ESPN notes.

“All the sacrifice was worth it. I’m so thankful to have been in the positions that I was growing up,” he said, according to CBS News. “Thankful for my mom. Thankful for my dad introducing me to basketball. My grandmother who helped raise me. All my friends and family that have supported me, every coach, every teammate that I’ve had. There’s a lot of people that have had a hand in the success of Jayson Tatum. So I guess in this moment, I’m just very thankful for everybody that supported me in the highest of moments and in the lowest of moments. I’m very, very appreciative of that.”

Following the June 17, 2024, victory, Tatum’s time with the team is reportedly far from over. Various league sources report that Tatum and the team have agreed to a five-year $315 million contract extension. This would be the largest contract in the history of the league, according to Bleacher Report.

Tatum signed his previous contract in November 2020 for a five-year, $195 million max extension, per Bleacher Report.

Prior to Tatum’s rumored contract, Boston Celtics player Jaylen Brown held the record for richest contract in NBA history. As AFROTECH™ previously reported, Brown signed a five-year supermax contract extension that concludes in 2029 and will pay him up to $304 million.
