Brown, who came from the 3rd pick in the 2016 draft, is a Boston star who forms a one-two punch with Jayson Tatum. After his debut, he has grown steadily and has been able to rise to the current position with constant efforts.
Brown, who was named an All-Star for the first time in his career in 2021, had a career-high season this season averaging 26.6 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists. He even enjoyed the honor of being selected to the All-NBA Second Team based on him.
Being selected to the All-NBA Team changed a lot in Brown’s future contract. Brown, contracted with Boston until next season, could negotiate a contract extension this summer. The key point is that as he was named on the second team, he qualified for a Supermax contract worth a total of $295 million over a five-year contract period.
Boston has no choice but to get into trouble. Boston, which already has a lot of high-payers on the team, will be hit hard by the salary cap situation if it invests an average annual salary of close to $60 million in one Brown.
It is highly likely that he will have to give up accompanying other key resources the moment Brown is given a huge contract extension. There is also a steady stream of gazes questioning the synergistic effect of the Tatum-Brown system.
However, it is not easy for Boston, a win-winner, to fill the power vacuum after parting ways with Brown. First of all, it seems that the team and the players will find a way to find an agreement at a level where they can laugh. However, if Brown wants to be recognized for his value with a high salary, the possibility of a team reorganization centered on Tatum after the trade cannot be ruled out.
First of all, after losing Game 7 of the Conference Finals to Miami, Brown said, “Winning and moving on is the part I focused on the most. We failed and I failed. To be honest, I didn’t have time to think about anything else right now,” he said in response to a question about a contract extension. He seemed to be delaying the answer.
Tatum, who forms a one-two punch with him, said: “Jaylen Brown’s contract extension is very important. He is one of the best players in the league. He is both offensive and defensive and he is still relatively young. And he has achieved a lot in his career. Renewing the contract is very important.”
President Brad Stevens, who coached Brown as a former head coach, also wants him to stay. Stevens said: “Without a doubt, I want Brown to stay on the team. He’s a huge part of our team, and I always believe in him and I’m grateful. Jaylen Brown has had a great year and was voted to the All-NBA team. ‘” said Brown.
Aside from Brown’s contract extension, the Boston front has plenty of challenges to tackle in the offseason. Will Brown be on the court in Boston’s green uniform next season?
