‘Robust Demand From A Lot Of Teams’ If Celtics Were To Listen On Jaylen Brown Trade

The Boston Celtics resisted the idea of trading Jaylen Brown during the 21-22 season when they were struggling before they turned around their season and ultimately reached The Finals under Ime Udoka.

But there was at least some level of reported interest from the Celtics that next offseason in trading Brown in a package for Kevin Durant.

With the Celtics possibly falling short of The Finals this season and Brown eligible for a supermax extension, the idea that they could consider trading him has been speculated about at least in the media. If the Celtics do make Brown available with one season remaining on his contract, there would likely be a lot of teams interested in gambling on their odds of extending or re-signing him.

“There would be robust demand for Jaylen Brown from a lot of teams if Boston ever actually started making or listening or picking up the phone or whatever you do with your phone when you maybe investigate a trade,” said Zach Lowe on his podcast between Games 3 and 4.

Brown can only receive the supermax from the Celtics and would be ineligible to be traded for one season.
