Jaylen Brown & Jayson Tatum Meet To Discuss Future


Things have not gone according to plan for the Boston Celtics this season. Despite Saturday night's win over the New York Knicks, discussions are being had league-wide about whether Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown can win together. Brown now says the two had a sit-down together this week to discuss it, and they are "convinced" it's all good.

Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports that the discussion happened after their embarrassing collapse to the Knicks earlier in the week, and that Brown says "the two are convinced they can play together and make it work long term. Said both are on the same page."

When pressed about possibly splitting up the pair, Brown said"I disagree. I think we can play together. We have played together well for the majority of our career. The last year or so hasn't gone as expected. But the adversity we've gone through will help us grow & get better in the future.

"If we get over this slump and continue to learn, I think there's a lot of good basketball on the other side of this. I only can control what I can control. I understand everybody has to do their jobs, but me and JT talk. We talked after the game, communicated with each other and things like that. So we're on the same page. I get where all the other frustration comes from, but as long as I'm on the same page with him and he's on the same page with me, that's where we're most focused on."

Recent rumors suggest the Celtics agree, and that they're even hopeful of adding a third star to their dynamic duo.

The Celtics' win Saturday ties them with the Knicks for 10th spot in the East, both sitting at an uninspired 19-21.
