How seriously should we take Jayson Tatum recruiting Damian Lillard to the Boston Celtics?

Is the ongoing speculation about Portland Trail Blazers star point guard Damian Lillard joining the Boston Celtics and All-NBA forward Jayson Tatum‘s reported attempt to recruit him something fans of the team ought to be keeping close tabs on, or is it typical offseason fodder that is closer to wishful thinking than any sort of likely possibility?

For the second time this offseason, Tatum has been tied to the disgruntled Trail Blazers floor general, and the predictable flurry of attention may be chasing the tale of the same report that came up even before the league’s 2023 free agency period had actually started.

The hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” podcast got together to talk it over on a recent episode.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
