Jaylen Brown was noncommittal to his future in Boston in a recent interview. The 26-year-old shooting reportedly was a candidate in a potential Kevin Durant trade, though Brown had been told that he was untouchable.

The Celtics star will enter the last year of his contract this summer and if he does not sign an extension with the team, he could become available for a trade.

According to an anonymous Eastern Conference executive, the Hawks could target Brown. Atlanta, he says, is trying to move John Collins in order free up cap space for another star.

This season Brown is averaging 26.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 36.1 minutes per game.
