The relationship of Jaylen Brown with the Boston Celtics has been speculated about following a report that he was discussed in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets for Kevin Durant.

Brown tweeted "smh" in response to the report on July 25th.

According to a source, Brad Stevens and Ime Udoka communicate with Brown "all the time" and have keep him in the loop. The source also adds that Brown seems to understand the situation.

Brown will be a free agent in 2024 and will almost certainly not extend his contract in free agency due to the fact that his extension max is far less than what he can earn once he becomes a free agent.
