The Boston Celtics’ small forward Jaylen Brown had carved a name for himself coming from the University of California. Coach Danny Ainge knows he has something special in him in lieu of his athleticism, which makes him such a versatile athlete.
Jaylen Brown could contribute best to the Celtics as a small forward, but could play the shooting guard position as well. He has the skill and certainly has the wits needed to foster in the league.
It’s really of no surprise that the Celtics rookie averaged 16.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.3 steals in 6 games in the NBA Summer League. It’s just a glimpse of what he can do with more experience.
But his stay in Boston could be shortened as rumors have surfaced that he could be sent to the Sixers via the Cavaliers for Kevin Love.
This 3-way trade involves the Celtics, Cavaliers and the Sixers, according to a report by the Inquisitr.
It seems Danny Ainge is willing to forego of Brown prior to unraveling his full potential in favor of a better-tested Kevin Love who’s long been a Celtics target for acquisition.
Kevin Love may not be much of a defensive product, but he will be of great benefit to Boston with his scoring abilities, particularly from long range.
Meanwhile, the Sixers would send Nerlens Noel to the Cavs to do much of the dirty work close to the rim. He is expected to fit well with the defending champions for his defensive game with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. He is not much of a scorer, but it’s not like the Cavs are in need of an offensive boost.
However, in spite of these rumors, Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto believes Kevin Love isn’t going anywhere next season.
“Once again, there are some silly trade rumors. I’ve been told since the middle of last season the Cavs have no intention of trading Love. And the same is true after the title” Terry Pluto said, as reported by Bleacher Report.
Do you think the Celtics and Danny Ainge would let go of Jaylen Brown considering his strong potential for Kevin Love who’s long been Cleveland’s odd man out?
