Jayson Tatum believes NBA players ‘are putting a lot on the line’ in the Orlando ”bubble”, where the league will resume the season.
The superstar of the Boston Celtics, who is due for a maximum contract extension of his rookie deal at the end of this season, added the resumption of the season could represent a massive risk for players that are set to be free agents.
“[There’s] a lot of guys in my situation; a lot of guys are going to be free agents. We’ve been off for four months, not being able to be in the facility.
Obviously, we’re supposed to stay at home and not having the normal access that we would have to the training facility or the weight room or the gym.
And then, [we’re] kind of being asked to ramp up and pick it back up at such a rapid pace and go down there and play. Guys are putting a lot on the line,” Tatum said during a conference call Tuesday afternoon, according to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps.
