Multiple league sources were adamant to MassLive.com that the Celtics have no interest in moving the All-Star Brown in the interim, particularly with him under team control for two more seasons at a below-market deal. 76ers general manager Daryl Morey has always aimed high in trade negotiations throughout his career but this is posturing will likely go nowhere given what’s happened to Simmons’ trade value over the past several months in the midst of his holdout.

· Would the Celtics ever trade Jaylen Brown for Ben Simmons?
· Is Steph Curry the MVP favorite?
· And is a suspension coming for Nikola Jokic?

Celtics will stick with Dennis Schroder in starting lineup while Jaylen Brown is out.
Smart/Schroder combo this season: +8.7 net rating in 367 possessions per Cleaning the Glass. That’s 84th percentile among all lineups with 100+ possessions. – 12:17 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said Dennis Schroder will continue to start while Jaylen Brown is out.
That likely puts Boston’s regular opening group as:
R. Williams
A. Horford
J. Tatum
M. Smart
D. Schroder
Should leave minutes for Pritchard and at least one of Langford and Nesmith. – 12:15 PM

A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely
Ime Udoka says Dennis Schröder will remain with the starting group, with Jaylen Brown (hamstring) out. Udoka added that Dennis has done well throughout his career whether he was starting or coming off the bench. – 12:13 PM

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Ime Udoka is going to keep Dennis Schroder in the starting lineup while Jaylen Brown is out so they can keep Josh Richardson and the young wings in their bench roles. – 12:10 PM

Warriors PR notes the season-high for anyone in NBA was 46 points by Jaylen Brown in OT. Steph is at 45 with about ten mins left in the 4Q – 11:57 PM

Jason Kidd on how Luka has improved over the first 10 games: “He’s learning how to play with JB. You can see he’s not afraid to give JB the ball. There’s a big trust, a good relationship between those two.”
The 2018 draft mates combined for 42 pts, 9 reb, 11 assists tonight. – 11:52 PM

Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA
The Celtics have outscored opponents by 16.2 points per 100 possessions with Jaylen Brown on the floor. – 10:20 PM

Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
The Celtics are the latest interested suitor to enter the Ben Simmons trade conversation. For Boston, the pathway to landing Simmons is the same as any other team, except the Celtics have Jaylen Brown. More at @BR_NBA: bleacherreport.com/articles/29502…6:27 PM

Just as the Celtics are starting to hit their stride, they’ve lost Jaylen Brown to a hamstring strain. Latest on @The Athletic theathletic.com/news/celtics-j…1:26 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Celtics coach Ime Udoka told reporters today Jaylen Brown will be out for at least a week or two with his hamstring strain. Another blow in what has been a rough start for the Celtics, who have a couple days off before hosting Toronto Wednesday and Milwaukee Friday. – 1:24 PM

Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Trading Jaylen Brown in a deal for Ben Simmons would be a bad idea for the Celtics.
That isn’t breaking news, but I wrote about Boston’s reported discussions with Philadelphia and the other possibilities that are in play here:

Udoka on Jaylen’s hamstring:
“He knows his body pretty well, and he said it didn’t feel terrible but he did feel it … The strain showed a week or two, and he knew something. He was being overly-cautious himself because of his past history.” – 12:46 PM

Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA

If Jaylen Brown misses two full weeks from the date of injury, that puts him at 11/18. Lakers come to town on 11/19.
Boston’s next five games are against East teams that have equal or better record so far. – 12:20 PM

How would Simmons fit with Celtics? Is Jaylen Brown too high a price to pay?

Teams discuss deals, often on a surface level, all the time in the NBA. Could the Celtics have checked in on the asking price of Ben Simmons? Sure. Are they trading Jaylen Brown for him. Absolutely not. – 11:50 AM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Ben Simmons is never getting traded if players like Jaylen Brown are the expected return – 11:44 AM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Jaylen Brown isn’t the cleanest Sixers fit in the world and it seems unlikely the Celtics want to deal him for Simmons in the first place, but let’s entertain the latest Simmons trade rumor because Brown is quite good phillyvoice.com/nba-trade-rumo…11:12 AM

Jon Johnson @jonjohnsonwip
Jaylen Brown? Gimme. – 11:04 AM

Ben Rohrbach @brohrbach
Not that this needs to be said, but the Celtics are obviously not trading Jaylen Brown for Ben Simmons. – 11:01 AM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Since a bunch are asking: I don’t think trading Jaylen Brown for Ben Simmons makes any sense for the Celtics. I think it makes massive amounts of sense for the Sixers.
I’d be surprised if anything happened here. But this league never ceases to surprise me, so who knows? – 10:54 AM

Bill Simmons @BillSimmons
“Hey, Daryl, it’s Brad.”
“Hey.”
“What’s going on with that guy who quit on your team and now does the bare minimum and completely torpedoed his trade value? Any interest in discussing a deal?”
“We’d want Jaylen Brown.”
“OK, I’m hanging up. Have a great rest of the day!” – 10:45 AM

Chris Forsberg @ChrisForsberg_
This is why I couldn’t be an NBA GM. The amount of laughter at another team suggesting a Ben Simmons for Jaylen Brown trade would make other GMs think I’m very unprofessional. – 10:28 AM

Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA
The idea that the Celtics would consider a Jaylen-for-Simmons deal but not a Jaylen-for-Harden deal is pretty funny. – 10:23 AM

Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Front offices always do their due diligence when it comes to potential trades, so it’s not wildly surprising that Boston has spoken to Philly about Ben Simmons.
That being said, the Sixers asking price is likely too high for Boston. Don’t see the Celtics moving Jaylen Brown. – 10:10 AM

this is the New York Knicks’ 5th home game of the season.
in 3 out of those 5, a player on the visiting team has recorded their career-high points scored:
1) Jaylen Brown (46)
2) OG Anunoby (36)
3) Ricky Rubio (37)

More on this storyline

Speaking last Friday on Celtics pregame live, the former NBA player recalled the conversation when trade talks were buzzing around the league which centers around the superstar. “I remember last year around this time when teams were calling about James Harden and Houston actually wanted Jaylen Brown,” Perkins said on the segment. “I was on the phone with Danny Ainge for an hour, and I remember how our conversation went. He was like, ‘Hey, Perk, would you trade Jaylen Brown for James Harden?’ And I was like, ‘Danny, you know how I feel about Jaylen Brown, but I would trade him for James Harden.’ He was like, ‘ Are you kidding me? He’s not going anywhere. He’s not even 25 and he keeps getting better.’ -via TalkBasket / October 25, 2021
