Today Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown inked a four-year, $115 million contract extension. This is very surprising since it is the first rookie-scale contract extension that Ainge has done since Rondo in 2009.

Jaylen Brown was the number 3 overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft and has quickly become one of the league’s top young forwards. Brown has averaged 11.2 points in three NBA seasons thus far. Brown was also a starter for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup that took place over the Summer.

Well, well, well, Brown was able to do what a lot of Celtics rookies before him could not. That is ink an extension with Danny Ainge. Although I am not the biggest Jaylen Brown fan, I believe that the Celtics can benefit from this extension. Hopefully, this only motivates and gives Brown more confidence for this upcoming season. The Celtics need him to step up as a scorer and leader on the court. Danny Ainge wants to keep this young Celtics core together and inking Brown was the first step. Let’s find out what Brown can do, knowing that he will be apart of this team for a while.
