The Boston Celtics organization, not just their fans, have heard the trade rumors surrounding star wing Jaylen Brown for years.

However, up to this point, the Celtics organization has resisted the temptation of splitting up a pair of ball-dominant perimeter players. Instead, Boston has looked for Brown and All-Star forward Jayson Tatum to lead them to the promised land.

Their best season to date appears to have been just last year, with the Celtics making it to the 2022 NBA Finals, where they lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games. Still, even while losing their head coach to a scandal in the offseason, Boston was able to lean on Brown and Tatum throughout the 2022-23 regular season as the Celtics finished with a 57-25 record.
