After earning All-NBA honors, he’s now officially a supermax man — Boardroom looks at the details of the Celtics’ historic Jaylen Brown contract.
Much has been made of the future of NBA All-Star wing Jaylen Brown. He has been one of the better two-way operators in the Association since being drafted by the Boston Celtics and has helped his team to notable postseason success, but an NBA championship remains elusive after breaking through and winning the East in 2021-22.
Thanks to a timely All-NBA selection in 2023, however, the Cal-Berkeley kid became eligible for a “supermax” extension at 35% of the salary cap, which put him in line to receive — whether you like it or love it — the single largest contract by total value in NBA history.
On July 25, that’s exactly what happened. Read it and then read it again: five years and $304 million, blowing Nikola Jokić, Bradley Beal, Stephen Curry, Joel Embiid, and Co. completely out of the water.
It’s a lot to process all at once, isn’t it? Take a breath and check out the full details below on the Celtics’ historic, record-setting Jaylen Brown contract extension.
