All roads lead to a Jaylen Brown-Boston Celtics divorce this summer

Jaylen-Brown

When the Boston Celtics envisioned the future, they saw Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum terrorizing the rest of the league with their 1-2 punch combo and winning the title. However, it seems like only one of them will get to see it come true. 

Sources believe a divorce is likely to happen in the summer

Several individuals with varying connections and positions in the NBA who wanted to remain anonymous believe Jaylen Brown will likely force a trade this summer if the Celtics suffer another early postseason exit. At 9th place in the East with a 27-25 record, there is a real danger of not making the playoffs if they don't start shaping up soon. 

A report published on Heavy.com details different opinions and interests on Brown outside Boston.

An unnamed coach on Brown and Tatum playing together: "When it was going bad, it was really hard to watch. It seemed like Brown was feeding off Tatum holding it. Like, Brown goes, 'Ah, screw it. Tatum's held it three straight times. Now if I get the ball, I'm shooting no matter what.' That just kills what you're trying to do as a team. You can see it happening."

From an NBA personnel: "Who knows if we ever get a real chance to trade for a player like that? But if you do, you'd better be ready to move fast."

Pulling off a trade is hard but necessary

Unless the Celtics miraculously find their way in the NBA finals, it looks like the best solution is to offer Brown in exchange for assets and draft picks. It's either him or Jayson Tatum at this point. Although the two have proven they could win games, it remains to be seen if they could win a title together. 

Getting Jaylen could be problematic for other teams, but the gamble and risks may be worth it. The 6-year NBA veteran is only 25 but has shown flashes of his potential. He has only made the All-Star game once in Boston, but JB could finally unleash his offensive prowess if he gets traded to a team that lacks scoring power. 

Maybe, Brown and Tatum are not the right pair for the Celtics. The front office has been waiting for them to become Batman and Robin for years. Maybe it's about time to accept that Brown is not a Robin after all but a Batman waiting to get his chance elsewhere.
