2022-23 Boston Celtics Contracts & Salary Cap Overview

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
Who’s the highest-paid player in Boston, and how big is the team’s payroll? Take a look at Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and every Celtics salary on the books this season.

The Boston Celtics put on a show of force throughout the NBA regular season, showcasing the kind of form under ascendant assistant-turned-head coach Joe Mazzulla that gave fans across New England a whole lot of hope that last season’s shortcomings in the NBA Finals were merely a prologue for what was to come.

Though they ceded the No. 1 playoff seed to the Milwaukee Bucks, a 57-win season is certainly nothing to sneeze at — not with a pair of ready-for-primetime stars like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown leading the line atop the North End’s iconic parquet.

But of course, with superstar talent comes a hefty salary burden to match.

So, knowing that the luxury tax man always comes to collect, that got us thinking — what are the biggest Celtics contracts on the books in 2022-23? Who’s the No. 1 highest-paid player in Boston today? You have NBA salary questions, Boardroom has NBA salary answers.
