NBA Trade Deadline bold prediction No. 1: The Boston Celtics will trade Jaylen Brown

The Boston Celtics have been playing a bit better as of late, but I’m pretty sure that the expectation is that this team is moving toward a big roster shakeup – whether that be at the NBA Trade Deadline or during the offseason.

One prime candidate to be traded is Jaylen Brown. Aside from Jayson Tatum, he’s the most valuable asset on the roster and could really help this team pivot in a new direction. It would be crazy if the Celtics didn’t explore trading Brown at the trade deadline.

In his short time as an executive for the Celtics, he’s proven that he isn’t afraid to make a big trade. Perhaps he could strike again, this time by dangling Brown ahead of the deadline.
