While most are focused on the idea of trading Brown away for what they perceive to be a more complimentary piece next to Tatum, Moore’s sources revealed a different, more reasonable storyline:
“There’s been a lot of talk in recent days about the Celtics and whether it is”working,” leading to the idea that Jaylen Brown could be moved.
Cost: Boston supposedly reached out about a potential Simmons trade, but talks ended when Philadelphia asked for Brown. If the 76ers are open to packages that don’t include Brown, then Simmons should be towards the top of Boston’s trade board.
Fox, Tatum, Brown, Williams, and Smart are all under contract for the next two years, and it’ll be even longer if/when the Celtics re-sign Brown.
