BOSTON, MA – Celtics forward Jayson Tatum has been named to the 2019-20 All-NBA Third Team, the NBA announced today. It’s the first time in Tatum’s three-year professional career that he’s received All-NBA recognition.

Named an NBA All-Star for the first time in his NBA career on January 30, Tatum became the second-youngest Celtics player ever selected to an All-Star Game (Antoine Walker - 21y, 180d).

In earning All-NBA recognition, Tatum joins Ed Macauley (First Team - 1950-51) as the only two players in franchise history to receive All-League honors before turning 23 years-old.
