After hearing his name invoked as someone who might interest the Cleveland Cavaliers, Jayson Tatum initially feared he might be included in the trade package the Boston Celtics put together Tuesday to land Kyrie Irving.

“I was watching [the trade news] on TV and I saw breaking news come across, so it was just as much of a shock to me as all the other fans,” said Tatum, who only this week moved to Massachusetts to begin offseason workouts in advance of training camp next month. “I was just as surprised as everyone else [about the deal]. I saw my name come up, and I didn’t know if I was going to get traded. … It’s all new to me. I haven’t played an NBA game yet; I just came from college. I don’t know how to handle all the trade talks. I was just like, ‘Wow,’ [when I] saw my name come up.”
