Further, he averaged 17.2 minutes in those games and earned 6.6 personal points. Since his first season, Jaylen has managed to remain pretty consistent in his game. In the 2018-19 season, he appeared in 74 games with an average of 25.9 minutes on filed earning 13 points.

In the 2019-2020 season, the shooting guard will pocket a base salary of $6,534,829.
Although the athlete’s run with the Celtics has been pretty decent, it failed to hit the mark post-2018 play-offs. With a degrading performance, Jaylen was demoted to the second team.
Now, the athelete is close to becoming a restricted free agent as Celtics is yet to extend his contract. On his team’s part, they remain financially restricted due to their signing of another NBA star, Kemba Walker.
Also, Jaylen’s open feud with teammate Kyrie Irving attracted negative publicity for the young gun.
As Boston Celtics remain mum about the athlete’s contract extension, there is a significant rumor in the basketball circuit. Allegedly, Indiana Pacers want to sign Jaylen to assist their star player, Domantas Sabonis.
Post departure of Al Horford and Marcus Morris in free agency, Pacers wants to maintain its winning culture via Jaylen's help.
Only time will tell, how the trade rumors will pan out for the athlete of height 6 feet 7 inches (2 m) and weight 99 kgs. With his fans and family; parents Marcellus Brown & Mechalle Brown and brother Quenton Brown's support, Jaylen will surely deliver in the basketball court.
