Is Jayson Tatum recruiting Bradley Beal to the Celtics?
It sure looks like Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum wants to have Bradley Beal alongside him in Beantown. He hinted as much in his latest Instagram activity.
On Saturday, internet personality Famous Los posted a video reaction on the rumors that the Golden State Warriors have Beal at the top of their wishlist. Add to that the rumors the Washington Wizards guard would actually welcome going to Bay Area to pair up with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Interestingly though, Tatum saw the post and made sure to ruin Famous Los’ mood with a rather simple but juicy response. The Celtics star commented a “shamrock” emoji–one of the symbols of the Boston franchise–to indicate that he wants Beal in green.

Although Jayson Tatum didn’t say anything, his comment certainly speaks volumes. It will also only fuel more trade speculations amid the uncertainty of Bradley Beal’s future in Washington.
For what it’s worth, it came after rumors surfaced that Beal would also love to join the Celtics and pair up with Tatum if ever he decides to request a trade from the Wizards. The two have been friends for a long time now and Boston would also be an ideal destination where the 28-year-old explosive scorer can actually compete for a title.
While it’s all rumors and speculations now, a Beal trade to the Celtics certainly won’t be surprising if it happens this offseason.
