Celtics: News and rumors of June 2nd

Celtics: Brad Stevens upbeat about Jaylen Brown

Jaylen Brown had a poor Game 7 against the Miami Heat, but the forward made his first All-NBA team this season, qualifying him for a supermax contract that he could sign this summer. $295 million over five years is possible starting in 2024 if the Celtics offer the 26-year-old.

President Brad Stevens, who also coached Brown for years, reaffirmed at the final PK that the forward is an important part of the Celtics and that he also feels comfortable in Boston. “I can say without a doubt that Jaylen wants to be here. He’s important to our team and we believe in him. Jaylen had a great year, making the All-NBA team.”

However, Stevens did not want to comment on possible contract negotiations. Brown averaged 26.6 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists over the regular season. For more on the Boston Celtics offseason, click here.

Celtics: Payton Pritchard will Boston verlassen

The Celtics had a very low guard rotation last season, so Payton Pritchard was hardly used behind Marcus Smart, Derrick White and Malcolm Brogdon. According to The Athletic, the guard would like to be traded in the summer so that he can be recommended for a new contract with another team next season.

The 25-year-old will become a restricted free agent in 2024 and will still earn around $ 4 million in the coming season. Already at the trade deadline there were rumors about the guard, but the Celtics kept Pritchard, who was only used in 48 games.

Due to his favorable contract, the Celtics could decide to keep the 25-year-old again. This would be a scenario for trading Smart or Brogdon, according to The Athletic.
