Jaylen Brown gets $115 million contract extension from Celtics
Jaylen Brown is getting paid in a big way.
Brown and the Boston Celtics have agreed to a four-year, $115 million contract extension ahead of the start of the 2019-2020 season, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Monday. That’s a massive contract for a player many questioned turning down $80 million. Apparently he knew he was worth more.
Brown, 22, averaged 13.0 points per game last season after averaging 14.5 the year before. He was set to be a restricted free agent after the season.
Brown is now being locked up by the Celtics and will be part of a core that will include Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart and Jayson Tatum moving forward. Gordon Hayward also has an option for next season and could be part of the team the next two seasons.
