Jayson Tatum Hasn’t Touched A Dime Of His NBA Money & Puts Everything In A Savings Account

 

This season, the Celtics’ young star, Jayson Tatum has developed yet again and is slowly becoming a franchise player.

Tatum has been growing as more of a go-to scorer with a 26.4 usage rate this season, and has started the 2019-20 campaign with some impressive averages. Through the first 15 games of the season, Tatum is averaging 20.5 points, 7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.4 steals.

Turns out Jayson Tatum is not only making great decisions on the court, but also off the court. In an interview with Maverick Carter, the 21-year-old revealed that he is putting every single one of his 7.83 million dollars he’ll be making this season into a savings account, and live off his endorsement deals. He’s done it in his previous seasons as well, and has never touched a dime of his NBA money.

Per CNBC:

 

“All the money I get from the Celtics, I put it in a savings account. When I picked my agent, I told him I want to do as much off-the-court stuff as I can. Right now I’m young, so I try to do everything as much as possible. … Tomorrow is not promised. You’re not promised the next contract. You want to save all the money you can.”
