CP feels Boston Celtics must pursue Jayson Tatum’s friend if Thomas Bryant pursuit fails

NBA free agency began with fireworks across the league, including the Boston Celtics being able to land an ideal TPE target in Danilo Gallinari, and then Daniel Theis, Aaron Nesmith, a 2023 first-round draft pick , and spares to touchdown turned Indiana Pacers’ Malcolm Brogdon on the first day of the FA period. Things have slowed as actual fireworks have taken precedent, but with Independence Day over and the NBA Summer League set to begin in Sin City, the federation should be rolling again soon.

Frankly, Kevin Durant’s trade request froze the league’s transaction line. No fewer than three teams, including the Phoenix Suns, Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors feature in its trade market. Oddly enough, his Brooklyn Nets have been the most active team of late, helping Edmond Sumner and TJ Warren to free-agent deals on Tuesday.

But with three roster spots remaining, the Boston Celtics front office still has work to do to fill in the margins around the core of the Eastern Conference championship. ClutchPoints’ Enzo Flojo outlined a few free agents worth pursuing in his article titled “3 Moves Celtics Still Need to Make After First Weekend of NBA Free Agency 2022,” and according to Flojo, Boston needs to be in go after Thomas Bryant first and foremost – and if it fails at all, Harry Giles should be the next big man on the team’s radar.

Jayson Tatum wants the Boston Celtics to sign his Duke teammate Harry Giles

2021-22 Boston Celtics All-NBA First Team forward Jayson Tatum wants his franchise to go after his good friend Harry Giles. He made that wish clear in a haunting tweet in all caps:

Tatum and Giles played together under recently retired legendary HC Mike Krzyzewski at Duke University in 2016-17. Both players spent one season with the Blue Devils and were subsequently selected as freshmen in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft. Tatum, of course, finished third by the Celtics and became a superstar, while Giles went to the Portland Trail Blazers at No. 20, was later dealt to the Sacramento Kings and has still bounced around in the five years since finding a steady NBA role. If CP had its way, that would change in 2022-23 when Giles rejoins his Blue Devils teammate with the Boston Celtics.
