You guys noticed when Tatum got drafted by the Celts they turned around and traded Avery Bradley, right? Some people think it was to create the needed cap space for Gordon Hayward, but we all know it was so Tatum could get #0.
I thought I had heard Bess wanted to transfer to SLU, but his family (dad possibly?) wasn't on board with SLU hence Akron. After Bess convinced them to at least talk to Ford and consider it they jumped on board.
