Hits 434.5 billion won for five years… Tamson goes to Dallas

ESPN, a U.S. sports media, reported on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time) that Tatum renewed his contract with Boston for a total of $314 million (about 434.5 billion won) for five years on the first day of the free agent (FA) market.

The amount is a whopping 60 million U.S. dollars on average per year. The contract also reportedly includes the right to choose a team one year later and a provision that allows players to receive financial compensation when transferring to another team.

Tatum, who was drafted by Boston with the third overall pick in the 2017 rookie draft, has now established himself as Boston’s franchise star, succeeding Bill Russell-Larry Bird-John Havlicek-Larry Bird-Paul Pierce. In the 2023-24 season, he averaged 22.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 7.2 assists in the championship game against the Dallas Mavericks, leading Boston to its 18th career victory.

He has already been selected as an All-Star in the NBA five times and won the gold medal in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics as a member of the U.S. national basketball team. He will also play for the U.S. national team at the Paris Olympics, which kicks off this month, along with other outstanding players.

Clay Tamson (34, 198cm), who led the Golden State Warriors’ heyday along with Stephen Curry, will move to the Dallas Mavericks. ESPN reported, “Tamson, who has qualified as a FA, will sign a three-year contract worth 50 million dollars (about 69.2 billion won) with Dallas.”

After being drafted by Golden State with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Rookie Draft, Tamson has been playing only at Golden State for 13 years, leading the dynasty era.

Nicknamed the “Splash Duo” along with Curry, Tamson averaged 19.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 793 games during the regular season. Along with Tamson, Tamson won the NBA title four times in 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2022. He was a five-time All-Star, and represented the U.S. at the 2014 FIBA World Cup and 2016 Rio Olympics, where he won the gold medal.

However, Tamson suffered a fatal knee injury and a ruptured Achilles tendon, and as he enters his mid-30s, he is said to be less than in his prime.토토사이트넷

In the 2023-24 season, he only scored 17.9 points on average. Other players performed fairly well, but the result was regrettable for Tamson. It is the first time in 10 years that Tamson has scored less than 20 points on average in this season since the 2013-14 season when he scored 18.4 points.

Tamson is expected to ease some of the burden of scoring goals in Dallas. Dallas already has strong “one-two punch” such as Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. Dallas, which lost to Boston 1-4 in its 2023-24 championship game, laid the foundation for its victory once again by adopting Tamson’s No. 3 option.

After Chris Paul moved to the San Antonio Spurs as a free agent the previous day, Golden State even sent Tamson to fill the gap by recruiting guard DeAnthony Melton (26). Melton is 188 centimeters tall and had an average of 11.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists for the Philadelphia 76ers last season.
