After numerous reports weeks ago suggested that the Boston Celtics and wing Jaylen Brown were struggling to get a contract done, it looks as if the two sides were able to come to an agreement.
Brown and the Celtics have come to terms which will extend the soon to be 23-year-old for a total of 4 years & $115 million dollars. Obviously Brown will draw his fair share of criticism for his production and the fact he is scheduled to earn close to 28.5 million per year. The Celtics organization and Danny Ainge obviously feel that Jaylen Brown’s best basketball is years ahead of him and you can understand the argument. Brown has great potential on both sides of the ball and showcased that potential especially this summer with his play for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup. There had been rumblings that Brown was seeking out a MAX contract from Boston, but obviously Brown and his camp decided that less than the MAX was a worthy investment from the Celtics. If Jaylen Brown can continue to take steps forward as an offensive weapon, this deal could look like a great value years down the road for the Celtics. The next man up? Mr. Jayson Tatum...and yes he will ask the Celtics to back up the Brinks truck. (Shout out Isaiah Thomas).
