Atlantic Notes: Schröder, Celtics, Raptors, Knicks

Celtics All-Star forwards Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are two major reasons why Dennis Schröder chose to sign with the Celtics in free agency, as Taylor Snow of relays (Twitter link).

Tatum and Brown are two of Schröder’s favorite players, and at 23 and 24 years old, respectively, the two young stars are only getting better. Boston could choose to start Schröder alongside Marcus Smart, Brown, Tatum and Robert Williams III this season.

“Jayson and Jaylen are two of my favorite players in today’s game,” Schroder explained. “Very competitive. They’re winners, two guys that will do whatever it takes to win the game. I think it’ll be a great fit and they are a big reason why I picked Boston.

“They both called me and showed a lot of interest, that was nice. I’m really looking forward to joining them soon and winning a lot of games together.”
