The 203 cm tall forward, who was drafted by the Celtics with the third overall pick in 2017, has developed into one of the NBA's biggest stars, and, together with Jaylen Brown, has formed arguably the best tandem in the league.

The two largest contracts in NBA history by total value now belong to the Celtics superstar duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Earlier, the Celtics also agreed to extend the contract of guard Derrick White. Now every player on Boston's starting lineup has a contract until at least 2025-2026. This season alone, the contracts of Tatum, Brown, White, Jrue Holiday, and Kristaps Porzingis will total $198.5 million.
