Celebrity Net Worth estimates Jayson Tatum's net worth in 2021 to be $25 million, and this will only continue to grow as his career does.
The St. Louis native was a five-star recruit prior to committing to Duke University. Tatum was also a gold medalist for Team USA for the U16, U17, and U19 squads.
Jayson Tatum only played one season for Duke before declaring for the 2017 NBA Draft. The Celtics had the No. 1 pick that year, but they traded back to No. 3 and wound up with Tatum. His rookie salary was nearly $30 million for four years.
Tatum was named to the NBA's All-Rookie First Team after his spectacular rookie campaign. The Celtics made it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2017-18, only to lose in seven games against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Jayson Tatum was named as an NBA All-Star for the first time in his career during the 2019-2020 season. He finished that season averaging 23.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists a game. Tatum was also named to the All-NBA Third Team.
The Celtics made it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals again that season. Unfortunately, they fell in six games against Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and the Miami Heat in the Disney bubble.
In the 2020 offseason, Jayson Tatum and the Celtics agreed to a maximum extension worth up to $195 million for five years, with a player option in the final year. However, because he missed out on All-NBA honors in 2020-21, he's not going to get $195 million and will get about $33 million less.
While that's a big bummer, Tatum enjoyed a big 2021 summer by being a part of Team USA's gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
According to Spotrac, Jayson Tatum will have made an estimated $57,687,445 through the 2021-22 season. That figure will balloon to $192,584,245 at the end of his max extension.
Along with his lucrative contract, Jayson Tatum also has a number of endorsements. The most notable one? The one with Nike and Jordan Brand. He was introduced as a Jordan athlete on June 21, 2019.
When asked about being one of the faces of the brand, Tatum responded like so:
"It’s truly an honor to be representing the greatest player ever. Being one of the faces at such a young age is super exciting for me."
Aside from the Jordan endorsement, Tatum also has deals with Subway and Gatorade:
Endorsements and lucrative contracts aside, Jayson Tatum never fails to give back to the community. This is why he started the Jayson Tatum Foundation.
According to the foundation’s website, its goal is to improve awareness and access to vital resources for children, teens, and families in underserved areas and populations.
The foundation partners with like-minded organizations to address the challenges of people in need and continues to work on strategies that will bring real change in these communities.
With Tatum’s love for the game, the foundation sponsors approximately 100 boys and girls to an all-expenses paid one-day summer basketball camp and leadership program that aims to feature character building, leadership development, community awareness, and basketball training.
During the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tatum — through the Jayson Tatum Foundation — partnered with Feeding America and Lineage Logistics on their Share A Meal campaign.
Tatum and his foundation pledged to match $250,000 in the Boston area and, along with his good friend Bradley Beal, $250,000 in their hometown of St. Louis to help provide and distribute meals:
The 23-year-old still has a lot of years to play in the NBA. So, it is safe to assume that he will bag a more lucrative contract in the future, especially if he still performs at a superstar level.
