Former Duke forward Jayson Tatum completed a workout at the Celtics training facility in Waltham Monday, a league source confirmed.

The Celtics have traded the No. 1 overall pick in Thursday’s draft to the 76ers, and in return they received the No. 3 overall pick in this year’s draft as well as a future first-round pick. Tatum is a strong candidate to be selected with the third pick this year.

As a freshman at Duke last season, Tatum averaged 16.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
