Jayson Tatum Girlfriend, Mom, Parents, Height, Weight, Age, Salary

Having made the National Basketball Association (NBA) Draft in 2017, professional American basketball player Jayson Tatum has come a long way even before making it to the top tier. Like many others slamming their ways to the top of the game, he has become an individual of interest to a lot of people. The young baller plays professional basketball for the Boston Celtics. Here are things you want to know about him.

Jayson Tatum – Biography and Age

The basketball star was born Jayson Christopher Tatum on March 3, 1998, in St. Louis, Missouri. He was raised as a single child by his mother, Brandy Cole, but he now has a younger brother, Jaycob Tatum, and a sister, Kayden.

For his education, the St. Louis-born star attended the Chaminade College Preparatory School before proceeding to the Duke University. In both his high school days and in college, he has been a very significant player.

Looking at his career, he began very early and by the time he was through with high school, he won almost all he could and ended as a five-star recruit. After he moved to college, it took him only a season to make the NBA draft. During the single season, he helped the Duke Blue Devils to win the ACC Tournament Championship.

It was, as stated, in 2017 that he made the NBA Draft after he signed for the Celtics, where he has been doing great for himself having broken records of Larry Bird to become the first Celtics rookie to record 20 points in as much as 5 playoff games in a row as well as the first to record 25 points or more in a playoff game.

More importantly, he has been able to help the Celtics to reach the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

He has represented the United States at the FIBA U19 World Championship in 2015 and the FIBA U17 World Championship in 2014, helping the teams to win the gold medal.

His mother had him when she was only 19, and she struggled hard to raise him. At a time, they lived in a house with no furniture. She was just about going to college when she found out she was pregnant, but then she gave birth to him and still continued her education with many details of the struggles the two went through.

What’s very interesting though, is that even as his parents were not together, his father has always been around for him. In fact, just like many other basketball stars rise on the wings of some other people close to them, the young Tatum rose with the help of his father, Justin Tatum, who taught him the game as well as his unexaggerated hard work. Justin Tatum is a basketball coach with the Christian Brothers College High School.

Jayson’s two younger siblings, Jaycob and Kayden are from his father’s other relationships. Nevertheless, Jayson is very close with his siblings and he shares their pictures on social media.

Even as he is a baller on the court, Jayson Tatum seems to also be the same off the court. He has been linked to more than a woman in the past. That said, his present girlfriend is Samie Amos. The two met in college during Samie’s sophomore year. Just as her boyfriend, she is also a sportsperson as she plays on Duke’s volleyball team. Her real name is Samantha Taylor Amos and she was born on Sept. 26, 1997.

Apart from Samie Amos Jayson Tatum has also been linked to another woman, Toriah Lachell. Even though they are no longer dating, Toriah has a son for Tatum, he was born in January 2018 and named Jayson Christopher Tatum Jr.

Height, Weight, and Body Measurements

Just like your typical basketballer, you would expect that Tatum has an athletic build and in fact, good height and body measurement. With no surprise at all, he does. He has a height of 6 ft. 8 in (2.03 m) and a body weight of ‎205 lb (93 kg).

Unarguably built for basketball, Tatum also has a 6-11 wingspan. His general body measurements are not stated.

Salary and Net Worth

In a projection of the salary for 2017 NBA Draft 1st round rookie, it’s been suggested that Tatum may earn as much as $12,346,200 in 2 years and $27,118,800 in 4 years. In line with this, he signed a 2-year contract with the Boston Celtics which will see him with the club till 2019.
