Malcolm Brogdon’s relationship with the Boston Celtics appears to be on shaky ground, stemming from a failed trade deal in June. Initially, the Celtics were close to trading Brogdon to the Los Angeles Clippers in a three-team trade that would have brought Kristaps Porzingis from the Washington Wizards to Boston.

Brogdon, unsurprisingly, did not react well to the reports of the near-trade and reportedly harbored resentment towards the Celtics per Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe.
