On Friday, the Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck revealed that he personally told Jaylen Brown that he wasn’t going to be traded for Kevin Durant who was finally traded to the Phoenix Suns.
“We don’t talk about private stuff on the air about contracts or anything like that,” Grousbeck said. “What happens in the league is agents or other teams – I mean, Brad [Stevens] is on the phone with every team, definitely every week during the season. Just saying, ‘Who do you like? Who is playing well? Who do you like on our roster?’ He files it away in his mental database. That’s just that. They talk all the time about everything, it doesn’t mean a trade is proposed. Jaylen is not going anywhere. He knew that before the trade deadline because I told him personally.”
