Boston Celtics sign Jaylen Brown to 5 - Year $303.7 Million superman Contract Extension
On Tuesday, July 25th, 2023 the Boston Celtics have agreed upon terms to sign their superstar shooting guard / small forward, Jaylen Brown, to the richest deal in the history of the National Basketball Association as of now. This new deal between Brown and the Boston Celtics is a 5 - year supermax contract extension worth up to approximately $303.7 million according to Jaylen’s agent, Jason Glushon.
Contract Extension Details
Brown was recently and as of now previously playing under a 4 - year $106,333,334 contract extension that was tagged on after his original rookie deal with the Boston Celtics (4 - year / $21,404,269). This new and exciting signing now makes the NBA record books.
Brown is currently scheduled to average an astonishing annual salary of $60,746,979 per year starting in 2024 through the 2028 - 2029 NBA season when Jaylen will become an unrestricted free agent once again. The remainder of the details for this deal are soon to come as the ink is still very fresh on this supermax contract extension.
Brown his sports agent Jason Glushon sat down and met with the Boston Celtics front office management and ownership last Sunday evening in Boston, Massachusetts in order to establish the finalizing aspects of the recently publicized historic NBA deal that will keep the now 2 - time NBA All - Star selection under contract through the 2028 - 2029 season of the National Basketball Association.
Record Breaking Contract
Jaylen's agreement to continue to play for the Boston Celtics for the upcoming 5 to 6 - years amazingly surpasses the current contract of the 2 - time NBA MVP and most recent NBA champion as well as the NBA Finals MVP award winner in Nikola Jokic ($276 million contract extension with the Denver Nuggets).
Brown & Tatum
Brown just became eligible for the 5 - year supermax contract extension with the Boston Celtics following him earning Second - Team All - NBA honors for his work in the past 2022 - 2023 NBA season. Jaylen along with his other superstar teammate in Jayson Tatum (who is also eligible for a major supermax contract extension next year) come together once again this for this upcoming season to form one of the NBA's most productive duos making the Boston Celtics one of the best squads in the Eastern Conference as well as possible NBA championship contenders.
Jaylen averaged his career - high of 26.6 points per game and a shooting percentage of 49 % last year, and he is currently scheduled to earn just $31.8 million next season as it is the last year of his previous contract with the Boston Celtics. Brown’s recently agreed upon supermax deal will come into play starting with the 2024 - 2025 NBA season.
Tatum and Brown pulled together for a combined average of 56.7 points per game during the 2022 - 2023 NBA regular - season, the 4th - most by two teammates since the 1976 - 1977 NBA / ABA merger. Jaylen and Jayson also scored 30 or more points in 10 - games, a feat only previously accomplished by Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant over the course of the past 30 – NBA seasons.
Brown continued to progress becoming more of a shot creator last year as he averaged 54 % of his made shots coming unassisted as well as a career - best average of 1.15 - points per direct drive to bucket.
The Boston Celtics have made the playoffs in each of Brown's seven NBA seasons, including the NBA Finals in 2022 and three Eastern Conference finals trips. Boston drafted the former UC - Berkeley basketball star with the 3rd - overall NBA draft pick back in 2016.
Throughout Jaylen’s 5 - year stellar NBA career he has averaged 17.9 - points per game, 5.2 - rebounds per game, and 2.2 - assists per game. However, his number have drastically increased recently as Brown scored 26.6 - points per game, pulled down 6.9 - boards per game, and 3.5 - assists per contest last year during the 2022 - 2023 NBA season. Those are becoming some NBA big - boy numbers as he looks to continue to enter into his basketball prime as a pro, but he has a long way to go to catch the all - time great Boston Celtic in Bill Russell.
