This offseason has been dominated by trade rumors. The Boston Celtics have been thrown into the fire as it was leaked that they’ve shown a potential interest in trading for Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant. But in the theoretical trade package, Jaylen Brown would have to be included.
Since those initial reports of Boston’s interest came out, a multitude of different stories have been reported. Just recently, Steve Bulpett of Heavy.com noted that Brown remains committed to the Celtics. But regardless, nothing will be truly known until a Durant deal is completed.
So as Celtics fans lie in wait of a move to occur, there’s nothing they can do but guess. However, Brown’s teammates seem to be confident in Brown’s ability to look past them. During the Jr. Celtics youth camp, Grant Williams spoke with the media and talked about how mature Brown is, as well as revealing that he’s been in contact with the Celtics star.
“Yeah, it’s a significant rumor. It’s something that you do your best to take with a grain of salt. I feel like JB is mature in his mindset, and he knows that. And, I’ve talked to him, texted him, you know, reached out as much as you can. But it’s one of those things, it’s a league, it’s a business,” Williams told reporters. “It’s one of those things you can’t really be discouraged by… I feel like we love JB. Everyone here in Boston, everyone on the team.”
