Boston Celtics’ Jayson Tatum has reportedly expressed concern about the NBA’s return plan and is reluctant to endanger his health.
Tatum is a player who is entitled to a maximum contract extension in the off-season Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News Remarks.
In addition to the risk of being infected with coronavirus and not being in the family (Tatum has a two-year-old son), there is a risk of injury, which is particularly important for players like Tatum who expect big orders in the near future.
A group of young players and members of the 2017 NBA Draft class, including Tatum, Bam Adebayo, De’Aaron Fox, Kyle Kuzma and Donovan Mitchell, previously expressed interest in the possibility of insurance policies to protect against career-threatening injuries in Orlando.
These insurance policies have been reported to cost around $ 500,000 for players signing over $ 100 million in renewals.
The NBA told players to make a decision about whether to play until the season restarts June 24th.
