The Boston Celtics have had themselves one of the better offseasons in the league so far after signing veteran forward Danilo Gallinari and trading for point guard Malcolm Brogdon, and star Celtics forward Jayson Tatum has already reached out to his new teammates. “I sent them a text message,” said Tatum at Las Vegas Summer League Saturday. “‘Happy to have you, if you need anything, reach out, looking forward to getting in the gym.'”

The St. Louis native shared team president Brad Stevens had given him the heads-up these moves might be coming while the team worked out the details to make them happen. “He told me some options they were looking at,” explained Tatum. “Things they were keeping an eye on.”

He also admitted that the way last season ended in a Finals loss is impacting his own approach to the offseason. “I still think about it every day,” he offered.

“Probably until the season’s started, until we get back to the championship, I guess, what happened in the Finals shaped the way you’re going to approach this offseason,” Tatum said. “To know how hard it is to get there, how much harder it is to get over that hump.”

“I have got to be better coming in next year, we’re obviously trying to get back (to the Finals).
