Despite a disappointing performance in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Jaylen Brown’s future with the Celtics appears secure. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported on his Hoop Collective podcast that he believes Brown, who is eligible for free agency in 2024, will re-sign with Boston when the time comes.

Brown is set to enter the final year of his 4-year, $106 million contract and has the opportunity to sign a lucrative five-year, $295 million supermax extension this summer.

The 26-year-old shooting guard averaged 26.6 points (49% field goals, 33.5% three-pointers), 6.9 rebounds, and 3.5 assists during the regular season. His numbers dropped to 19 points (42% field goals, 16% three-pointers), 6.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists in during the Miami series.

With the offseason ahead, the Celtics face important decisions that could shape the team’s future. However, it seems likely that Brown will remain a cornerstone of the franchise, alongside his teammate Jayson Tatum.
