Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown is set to sign the biggest contract in NBA history.
According to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Celtics and star wing Jaylen Brown have reached an agreement on a five-year, $304 million supermax extension. Before the 2024–25 season, Brown, 26, will have one year left on his current deal before it is extended. His salary for the upcoming season is $28.5 million.
His contract will be longer than that of the Denver Nuggets’ five-year, $276 million pact with two-time league Most Valuable Player Nikola Jokic.
Brown was drafted by the Celtics with the third overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft. He achieved career highs in points (26.6) and rebounds (6.9) per game, along with 3.5 assists, over the course of 67 games last season. He also shot 49.1% from the field.
