The rumor mill is heating up and Jayson Tatum just added some fuel to the fire.
Well, sort of.
The two-year forward who just recently signed with Michael Jordan's Jordan brand has been overseas with the prolific company and took to Instagram to post a group photo with members of the Jordan brand family. Kemba Walker, who has been signed to the popular sneaker brand since 2015, was captured next to Tatum, Jordan, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony.
Tatum posted the photo days before the Celtics' interest in signing Walker was originally reported. Now, with Adrian Wojnarowski's most recent report suggesting Boston has the greatest chances of inking the free agent point guard to a deal this summer, Tatum and Walker could ultimately become teammates within the next week.
