Jaylen Brown on Hawks’ radar?

“One reason the Hawks are trying to unload (John) Collins is to get that cap space and be in position to add someone, another star, with Trae,” one Eastern Conference executive said. “It is not easy to get free agents to Atlanta but Jaylen Brown would be different—they want to be in position, at least, to make a move if he wants to be there. I think there is not question they are watching the situation with him. Closely.”

NEW @CLNSMedia — On Jaylen Brown’s future. The $ will always rank high as a consideration. Would he pass up $290M?
And if he doesn’t make All-NBA, isn’t eligible for 290, does a trade & the possible new extensions under the new CBA become more appealing? clnsmedia.com/how-jaylen-bro…2:50 PM

For those on whale watch duties, Jaylen Brown (26.7 ppg, 49% FG) will be a FA in 16 months. He told the Ringer of future: “I don’t know. As long as I’m needed. It’s not up to me.We’ll see how they feel about me over time & I feel about them over time I will stay where I’m wanted” – 10:25 AM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
Last night, the @celtics Jayson Tatum (36 points) and Jaylen Brown (27) each scored at least 25 points in the same game for the 66th time.
They broke a tie with John Havlicek and Jo Jo White for the most such games by a duo in franchise history.

Jaylen Brown was asked how he feels about the city of Boston and the organization after his recent comments in a couple of stories. Among other things, he said the Celtics “gotta have everybody on board” if they want to do what they say they want to do. Said he’s focused on that. pic.twitter.com/09Lrn7JbTF1:57 AM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Jaylen Brown said he spoke with Cal AD Jim Knowlton about the school’s coaching opening and offered his thoughts, including an endorsement for Kennasaw State coach Amir Abdur-Rahim,who has drawn interest. Brown said he’s happy to be included in the process. #Celtics #CalBears1:29 AM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Jaylen Brown just endorsed Amir Abdur-Rahim as the next Cal coach. He said the school asked for his advice and he thinks Abdur-Rahim would be a great candidate. Abdur-Rahim is Shareef’s brother and a former assistant of Robert Williams in college. – 1:17 AM

4. No answer for the stars in Green. Jayson Tatum smoked the Kings for 34 points and it could have been more if he could hit his free throws. Jaylen Brown added 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting. They certainly got some calls from the refs, but they also hit tough shots. – 12:16 AM

Very compelling, inquisitive profile of Jaylen Brown by @loganmurdock. Brown is juggling a lot, and the piece lays out well the inherent (and sometimes self-inflicted) difficulties of being an athlete-activist, even with the best intentions. AK

Jaylen Brown is a no-win situation when he’s asked about long-term plans. If he says he’s staying & talks break down, he’s the villain. He tried to be non-committal, and people freak out anyway.
And then people will say, well he should have answered a certain way… – 5:22 PM
Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Amir Abdur-Rahim is the brother of ex-Cal and NBA star Shareef Abdul-Rahim and also went to same Ga. high school as ex-Cal star Jaylen Brown, now with Celtics. The Pac-12 does not have any Black head men’s basketball coaches and Cal is interested in changing that, sources said. – 5:02 PM

Can see why many might mistake this, but Jaylen Brown isn’t on a media tour touting his discontent. He gave the Ringer interview in January (the NYT one happened in HOU last week), and all his responses stem from questions. Think it’s worth opening the hood on how this works… – 2:38 PM

More on this storyline

And, more than that, Brown is known for being tough-willed and for being willing to seek out his own unique path. Downplaying his enthusiasm for remaining with his current team is in character for him. “Jaylen is a smart man, he kind of sees through some of the BS of the league,” one NBA executive told Heavy Sports. “It would be of no advantage to him to come out and say, ‘Hell yeah, I want to stay in Boston and I’ll sign whatever they give me.’ That might be the popular answer, but he is not going to give the popular answer. Things change fast in the NBA, and who knows where they might be in two years?” -via Heavy.com / March 23, 2023
When asked whether he wants to stay in Boston long term, Brown is noncommittal. “I don’t know. As long as I’m needed. It’s not up to me,” he says. “We’ll see how they feel about me over time and I feel about them over time. Hopefully, whatever it is, it makes sense. But I will stay where I’m wanted. I will stay where I’m needed and treated correct.” -via The Ringer / March 22, 2023
