Boston Celtics Talk: Jaylen Brown Gives His Thoughts On Hayward Signing
Boston Celtics second-year player Jaylen Brown took questions from reporters on Wednesday. Being a day after Gordon Hayward signing with Boston many of the questions revolved around Hayward.
“It’s great for the Celtics,” Brown told reporters. “It just means we’re gonna be a really good team this year – we’re supposed to be on paper at least, and we just gotta come out and execute.”
Brown also talked about the city and the team’s culture and how he thinks Hayward wanted to be part of it.
“It’s a city with a team with a lot of history,” Brown said. “A big legacy and big shoes to fill so it’s a team that wants to win and doesn’t settle for less. And I think that [Hayward] wanted to be a part of that.”
Brown noted that he was at the team’s practice facility when Hayward visited. He said that he was asked to be there, and spent 10-15 minutes chatting with Hayward.
“He was gonna make the decision best for him regardless,” Brown said.
