The Boston Celtics seemed to have a ready-made nickname for wing duo Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum -- 7/11, the numbers they both wore for the Celtics' Summer League squad.

Tatum, however, wore the number 0 in his year at Duke. After Avery Bradley was traded to Detroit to make room for Gordon Hayward's signing, that number became available once again, and Tatum appears to have snatched it up.

Jayson Tatum wore #0 at Duke. Are the #Celtics nixing the "7-11" nickname already? (h/t @Collin_Perry15)
