Jaylen Brown agrees to 4-year, $115 million extension with Celtics

Contender or pretender? Here are the Celtics’ best case and worst case scenarios

Contender or pretender? Here are the Celtics’ best case and worst case scenarios

The Boston Celtics have signed forward Jaylen Brown to a contract extension, the team announced today. The extension does not include a player or team option, Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reports.

- $4 million if he plays 65 games, and if the Celtics win 49 games and reach the second round of the playoffs.

The Celtics haven't agreed to a rookie scale extension since Rajon Rondo in 2009.

Glushon and Celtics general manager Danny Ainge negotiated most of the deal's details over the weekend in Boston.

Pakistan freshen up squad for Australia tour in wake of Sarfraz's sacking
Chief selector Misbah, who is also the head coach of the Pakistani team, said he wishes to play "aggressive, attacking cricket". The exit from T20Is means curtains for Shoaib Malik who had already announced retirement from Tests and ODIs.

Brown, 22, enters his fourth National Basketball Association season with the Celtics, holding career averages of 11.2 points (46.2% FG, 35.5% 3-PT, 65.8% FT), 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 24.4 minutes over 222 career games (115 starts).

The third overall pick in the 2016 draft, Brown averaged 14.5 points and nearly five rebounds in his second year, when he was 21 and the Celtics finished second in the East and took the LeBron James-led Cavaliers to seven games in the conference finals. His scoring and 3-point shooting numbers dipped from the previous campaign and he lost his starting position after playing a major role in the club's run to the Eastern Conference finals in 2018.

"He's a great person and hard worker who, at 22 years old, can score and defend against the best players in the NBA", Ainge said.

In all, this contract makes sense for both sides - the Celtics retain Brown (and he remains a movable contract), and Brown gets his money guaranteed before the season starts, eliminating a potential distraction down the road.
