Giles is eager to show the rest of the league what it has been missing, but his best friend and former Duke teammate, Tatum, and mentor, Chris Paul, have all advised him not to be in a hurry to regain his lost status or prove anything. “It’s my time. I’m anxious to be out there, attacking every day,” Giles told Yahoo Sports. “It’s hard. I’m still trying to get through that. My coaches are telling me to slow down, my teammates and my peers, people that I look up to, just telling me, ‘Slow yourself down. You’ve been away from the game for almost two years, your rhythm will come back.’ Jayson told me, ‘Let it come to you. You can’t get it all back in one game.’ ”
“I think with every rookie that comes into the NBA it’s really a race to maturity, and some people are further ahead like a Jayson Tatum,” Larranaga said after Tatum practiced with the summer leaguers on Sunday. Tatum will not participate in summer league, but Stevens asked him to join the Celtics’ youngest players for practices before they head west.
