While it might seem like it happened in another decade, it was not that long ago that Boston Celtics star wing Jaylen Brown was seeing his name in trade rumors connecting him to disgruntled Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant.
Now, at the media's first chance to speak to the Georgia native about those rumors at the Celtics' 2022 Media Day proceedings since the thick of those rumors, Brown shared whether he had had a chance to speak to the team about it. "Yes and no," said Brown via MassLive's Brian Robb. "I've talked to my teammates, ownership, etc. - I keep those conversations between us."
The Cal-Berkeley product wanted to set the record straight about where his attention was focused ahead of the 2022-23 NBA season. "I'm here and ready to play basketball, probably the best shape of my life," he explained.
"I'm excited to start the journey," Brown added.
