Despite being rumored as a potential trade candidate if the Boston Celtics make a move for Kevin Durant, Jaylen Brown doesn't seem like he's going to cause problems for his current team.
Per Steve Bulpett of Heavy.com, one rival executive said they believe Brown is "all-in" on the Celtics for the long-term if they want to keep him.
"From everything I’ve been told, Jaylen’s a loyal guy. I know frustration can happen when things aren’t going well, and I think we saw some of that earlier in this past season," the executive said.
Last month, Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported the Celtics offered a package of Brown, Derrick White and a draft pick to the Brooklyn Nets for Durant.
Word of that offer seemed to get back to Brown, based on this Twitter response:
Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reported earlier this week that the Nets asked for Brown and Jayson Tatum from the Celtics when the two teams were discussing a deal.
We've seen in the past in various sports where a player will seek a trade if they hear that their current team was seeking to replace them or move them in a deal that doesn't come to fruition.
