Jaylen Brown has agreed to sign with Donda Sports, which is Kanye West's marketing firm.
"It was time. For me, like I said, anytime I make a life decision, I contemplate. I think about things deeply," Brown said. "And from what I want to do, the missions I want to get accomplished, it was the right decision."
Brown recently became a free agent after his long-term deal with Adidas expired.
Donda Sports is expected to handle Brown's marketing deals.
Brown is aware of the criticism West has taken and it doesn't bother him.
"People have concerns or critiques, etc., but in the world we live in, there's concerns and critiques in any and everything," Brown said. "I feel like this is a good moment for me in my particular life. I'm excited to build and create and do things that I've always imagined I wanted to do on the court and off."
