Jaylen Brown signs Celtics supermax extension.

Brown and the Celtics reportedly agreed to a five-year, $304 million supermax extension, the highest in NBA history. He signed the contract Wednesday.  

“I appreciate the Celtics' and community's investment and commitment,” Brown added. “That investment will be felt in return from me here in Boston, on and off the floor, and internationally.”  

Brown remains with the team that chose him third overall in 2016 and saw him become a two-time All-Star.  

Last season, he averaged career-high 26.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. In the Eastern Conference finals, the Celtics lost to the Miami Heat,  

lowering their statistics. In Game 7, Brown scored 19 points on 8-of-23 shooting, nailing one of nine 3-pointers.  

His overall time in Boston has made him a critical component of the franchise's core that management didn't want to lose when his four-year contract expires next season.  

Brown was eligible for the supermax extension after making his first All-NBA second team.  

Since the season concluded, Celtics president of basketball operations Brad Stevens has wanted Brown to sign a long-term deal.  

“He’s important to us. “We believe in him and I’m thankful for him,” Stevens remarked last month. I appreciate that such individuals return to work after success. They accept defeat and return to work. So I know they're about that. Finding that is difficult.”  

All-Star Jayson Tatum, who led the Celtics to the NBA Finals in 2021-22 and the conference finals last season, agreed. Following Boston's East Finals loss in May, Tatum stated Brown's long-term retention was “extremely important.”
