According to Celtics radio color commentator Cedric Maxwell, Tatum said that he would trade himself for AD if push came to shove.

It’s no secret that Boston plans to make a heavy push for the superstar big man should he become available.
Per NBC Sports Boston:
As Maxwell explained to host Adam Kaufman on CLNS’ “Celtics Beat” podcast, Jayson Tatum’s father, Justin Tatum, took exception to Maxwell’s insistence that Boston should trade his son in a heartbeat if it meant acquiring Davis.
“Jayson Tatum’s dad came to me … and said, ‘I’ve got a bone to pick with you. … You said you’d trade my son for Anthony Davis.’ And I said, ‘And?’ And he said, ‘Well, I probably would trade him too if he wasn’t my son.’ “
Maxwell then took that story to Jayson, who came right out with it.
“Yeah, I’d trade me too for Anthony Davis,” Tatum told Maxwell.
