If that holds true, Tatum will give Duke top-three picks in four consecutive drafts following Jabari Parker (No. 2, Milwaukee, 2014), Jahlil Okafor (No. 3, Philadelphia, 2015) and Brandon Ingram (No. 2, Los Angeles Lakers, 2016). "I'm a big fan of them; they're fans of me, so we'll see how that plays out".
There is still time, and it is possible the Celtics made a decision without any workout.
Tatum and the Celtics seem to have more familiarity, with the 6-foot-8 swingman believing he'd be a good fit on the roster of the team that had the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Ainge has a long history of making unconventional picks, and has often been criticized for taking players that could have been available later on.

With the amount of top end talent in this draft, this is a year that Ainge really can not afford to miss. Prior to that, you have to go all the way back to Todd Fuller, who went No. 11 overall to Golden State in the 1996, to find an N.C. State lottery pick.
The frustrating part is that we will not have a definitive answer for years.
The Celtics got the No. 3 pick in that deal, which was finalized Monday afternoon.
Jackson did not elaborate on why he opted out of the Sacramento workout, saying only that it didn't work out.
"So there was something that he didn't want to play for the Celtics", he said. The majority of the other 29 teams would be, too. "We just did what we had to do to move up to get him".
"Right now he's just messing with things", the source said of Jackson.
Ainge has gone from the easy sure thing top pick, to complete chaos at the third pick. "At every level of play, Josh has strived to win, and we are confident that wherever he ends up in the National Basketball Association he will bring an unselfish, winning attitude that is critical to building a championship culture".
Forwards Josh Jackson of Kansas and Jayson Tatum of Duke are two players frequently mentioned as possibilities at the No. 3 spot, and Celtics president Danny Ainge said Boston could get the player there they might have taken at No. 1.
