Jayson Tatum is one of the most talented players in the NBA today. He has been the leader of the Celtics franchise for the past few years and the team is well aware of his capabilities of leading them to yet another Championship. He has led them to two back-to-back Conference Championship Rounds and also led them to an NBA Finals appearance in the 2021-22 season where they unfortunately fell 2-4 against the mighty Golden State Warriors.

Tatum plays typically as the power forward but can excel in the small forward position as well. While he played great as a power forward in college, he has been able to adapt to the small forward role easily with the Celtics in the NBA. Standing 6 feet 8 inches and weighing 210 pounds, the Celtics star can play various positions as per the team's requirements.

Jayson was drafted by the Boston Celtics with the third overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. The Celtics signed him on a four-year 30.07 million dollar rookie scale deal. In the 2020 offseason, he signed a rookie scale max extension worth $163 million which runs till the 2024-2025 season. The 2025-2026 season is a player option worth $37.1 million.

What is Jayson Tatum’s Current Contract?

Jayson Tatum signed the rookie scale max extension which is worth $163,000,300 over five years. The fifth year is a player option worth $37,096,620.

Tatum's current contract is fully guaranteed and his average annual salary is $32,600,060. In the 2023-24 NBA season, Tatum is expected to earn a base salary of $32,600,060.

The terms of his current contract are as follows:

  • 2025 Player Option
  • 15% Trade Kicker
  • No All-NBA: $163M (25%)
  • All-NBA: $195.6M (30%)

As Tatum did not meet the All-NBA requirement set by the Celtics, his contract remained as a five-year deal worth $163,000,300. Having said that, NBA player's contracts are in any case quite loaded, and earning a salary north of $30 million annually is no joke.

Tatum's fifth year of the contract which will earn him $37,096,620 is a player option at the start of the 2025-26 season, and if he decides to sign it, he will be an unrestricted free agent by the 2026-27 season.
