Following the Celtics dealing away their No. 1 pick in Thursday's draft to the 76ers for a package including the No. 3 pick, the organization is now evaluating its new options.

According to ESPN, the Celtics worked out former Duke forward Jayson Tatum at their practice facility in Waltham on Monday. Tatum, a 6-foot-8 forward, averaged 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.1 blocks last season as a freshman.

The Celtics saw Tatum work out in Los Angeles, but Monday was the first time Tatum visited the Celtics. The report added he impressed with his shot-making and footwork.

It appears the Celtics are deciding between Tatum and Kansas forward Josh Jackson with their No. 3 overall pick.
