After openly expressing doubt about his long-term future with the Boston Celtics, Jaylen Brown could have a long list of potential suitors if he hits free agency after the 2023-24 season.
Per Sean Deveney of Heavy.com, the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State Warriors are viewed as the most likely potential landing spots for Brown in the summer of 2024.
One league executive told Deveney "probably half the league" would at least have interest in Brown if he becomes a free agent.
Speculation about Brown picked up on Tuesday stemming from comments he made in a profile published by The Ringer's Logan Murdock when asked about his future in Boston.
"I don't know. As long as I'm needed. It's not up to me," Brown said. "We'll see how they feel about me over time and I feel about them over time. Hopefully, whatever it is, it makes sense. But I will stay where I'm wanted. I will stay where I'm needed and treated correct."
In the same article, Murdock noted Brown spoke to Jayson Tatum and Celtics president of basketball operations Brad Stevens on a three-way call last offseason when he was rumored to be in a trade offer to the Brooklyn Nets for Kevin Durant.
