Jaylen Brown’s deal with the Boston Celtics is a long-term investment in continuity

Star forward Jaylen Brown’s recently signed supermax contract extension with the Boston Celtics is worth over $300 million, but among the most interesting aspects of his historic deal — the largest in the history of the NBA — is what the Celtics see as an investment in their future.

In recent years, the Celtics have been successful in the playoffs because they kept their core players together, allowing them to grow and develop their chemistry over time. This deal can be seen as an investment by Boston in continuity even as other moves acknowledge the roster still needed work.

The hosts of the Peacock “Brother From Another” show linked up to discuss the context of Brown’s supermax extension.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
