Boston Celtics have revealed their intentions on the potential trade swap between Jaylen Brown and Ben Simmons. Simmons has been a constant talking point in trade rumors since the offseason.
In the last few days, several trade rumors surfaced, but Brian Robb of MassLive.com has insiders believing that Boston is not going to ship the forward to their Eastern Conference rival.
“Multiple league sources were adamant to MassLive.com that the Celtics have no interest in moving the All-Star Brown in the interim, particularly with him under team control for two more seasons at a below-market deal.”
Brown is currently out with a hamstring injury; however, he started the season strong, registering career highs in points and shooting percentages.
Brown is under contract until the end of the 2023-24 season, thanks to a four-year rookie extension deal worth $106.3 million he signed with Boston back in 2019.
Simmons is due to earn at least $35 million from the 2022-23 NBA season until the expiration of his current deal after the 2024-25 campaign.
