Overshadowed by the brilliance of his running mate Jayson Tatum, the 24-year-old Brown’s game took a big step up this past season, his fourth with the Celtics. Brown averaged career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, and steals while starting every game he appeared in for the squad that took him with the No. 3 pick in the 2016 draft. He also morphed into one of the most indispensible, and dare we say underrated, sidekicks to a superstar in the league. Brown had a reputation as a defender and Swiss Army knife type of player before the start of the 2019-20 season, but he blossomed into an ultra-steady second or third scoring option for the Celtics who already brings it defensively making the extension Boston inked him to in 2019 look smart and prudent. Brown’s going to be well worth the $26 million he’ll make on average per campaign through the 2023-24 season.
