Celtics GM Danny Ainge said that he hangs up the phone when teams ask about Jaylen Brown in trade talks. Several names in Boston have been floating around the rumor mill such as Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart, but it sounds like Brown is all but untouchable. This also might explain why the Kristaps Porzingis trade talks stalled -- the Knicks reportedly wanted Brown in any deal. A crowded wing rotation in Boston limits Brown's fantasy appeal, but expect him to take on a larger role in 2017-18 because of his ability to play three positions.

The Knicks are ask the Celtics for the No. 3 pick, Brooklyn's pick next year, Jaylen Brown and Jae Crowder for Kristaps Porzingis, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. This version of the deal wouldn't include Joakim Noah's contract, per the report. This sure is a lot to ask from the Celtics, so it's no surprise they're not willing to meet this asking price. Jaylen Brown also has a close relationship with former Knicks president Isiah Thomas.

Jaylen Brown will play for the Celtics Summer League squad this offseason. "Jaylen came right into my office and said, ‘I’m playing this summer,’" Danny Ainge said. "And I said, ‘OK, tell me what’s on your mind.’ And he pretty much just said, ‘Because I don’t want anybody to even think that I’m not ready right now. I’m ready to play and I’m ready to win.’" Summer League isn't always a popular thing amongst players, but Brown's competitive drive is too great to keep him off the floor, regardless of his opponent. He might not play a ton at his second summer league, but he should see an expanded role with the Celtics next season after a solid rookie year.

Jaylen Brown said he's "excited by the now" while discussing his future with the Celtics. "I’m excited about this summer. I try not to look too far ahead," Brown said. "Everybody talks about the future and how much potential we have; I’m worried about the now. I want to be part of the now. That’s all I’m focused on." Brown made a name for himself in the final month of the season and played some nice defense on LeBron James in the Conference Finals, so the Celtics have every reason to be excited about his future. Jae Crowder and his bargain of a contract may be used as trade bait this summer, but Brown's ability to play multiple positions means he should be ready to step into a larger role next season.

Jaylen Brown (hip) said he was told his hip pointer will heal with rest. After the Game 5 loss, Brown said on a scale of 1-10 for pain in his hip, it was an 11, and it was 16 after the fall. He also said he wants to play in Summer League in July, so it sounds like he'll only need a couple weeks to get right. After a handful of eye-catching games in the past month, Brown is going to be a popular sleeper next season.

Jaylen Brown (hip) went to the locker room in the second half and did not return. He did limp to the locker room under his own power. Brown was playing through a hip pointer in this game, so he may have aggravated it. The Cal product did have a solid finish to his rookie season and is likely looking at a bigger role next year. He'll be a late-round in standard leagues.

Jaylen Brown (hip) is good to go for Game 5 against the Cavs on Thursday. He did wince a little at shootaround, so he's not 100 percent. Brown played 20 minutes in Game 4 and just 13 in Game 3, so he's likely looking at minutes in the teens for today. The Celtics will likely have a similar nine-man rotation today.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge said that Jaylen Brown (right hip pointer) is in a "lot of pain." Ainge still called Brown questionable, so it sounds like he's shaping up to be a game-time call. Brown has had a strong run in the playoffs and is arguably Boston's best defensive option on LeBron James, so it will be a huge blow for the Celtics if he can't go. Expect to see some bigger lineups if Brown can't play with more minutes falling to Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko.

Jaylen Brown (right hip pointer) is questionable for Game 5 on Thursday. He's been a key piece to the Celtics these days, especially with Isaiah Thomas (hip) out for the season. Brown played 20 minutes in Game 4 and he's likely looking at more minutes, assuming he's healthy enough to go. If he can't go at home, there should be more big-ball lineups with Jonas Jerebko while Kelly Olynyk may play more.
