Jaylen Brown Singed the Richest Deal in NBA History

Jaylen Brown Singed the Richest Deal in NBA History

Jaylen Brown, the versatile guard/forward of the Boston Celtics, has reached a significant milestone in his career by agreeing to a momentous five-year, $304 million supermax contract extension. This record-breaking deal, the richest in NBA history, is set to take effect starting from the 2024-25 season.


The contract stands out for its complete guarantee and inclusion of a trade kicker, making it a highly secure agreement for both the player and the team. Notably, it does not contain a player option, further demonstrating Brown’s commitment to his team and future prospects.

At the age of 26, Jaylen Brown has already earned the distinction of being a two-time All-Star. During the previous season, he achieved a career-high average of 26.6 points per game for the Celtics, which led to his well-deserved inclusion in the All-NBA second team—a prestigious honor he received for the first time in his career.

This newly sealed deal ensures that both Brown and Jayson Tatum, another key player for the Celtics, will remain a formidable duo for the team in the foreseeable future. Tatum himself secured a five-year, $163 million contract in 2020, with his player option scheduled after the 2024 season. Moreover, Tatum will be eligible for a supermax extension in the next season, further solidifying the Celtics’ commitment to building a competitive and successful team around these talented stars.

Jaylen Brown “Super Max” Deal

The Celtics star is projected to earn nearly $70 million in the 2028-29 campaign alone, courtesy of Marks:

  • 2024-25: $52.4 million
  • 2025-26: $56.6 million
  • 2026-27: $60.7 million
  • 2027-28: $64.9 million
  • 2028-29: $69.1 million

Boston Celtics’ Jaylen Brown has secured a remarkable five-year, $304 million supermax contract extension, surpassing the previous record set by two-time MVP Nikola Jokic’s $276 million deal with the Denver Nuggets in 2022.

Since joining the league as the third overall pick in the 2016 draft from California, Brown has risen to become a prominent star. Over the last four seasons, he has consistently averaged 20 or more points, showcasing his exceptional talent and potential.

The Celtics have assembled a team with an extensive payroll, and this is expected to continue. By 2023-24, they are anticipated to be a taxpaying team. In the following season, when Brown’s new contract takes effect, the Celtics will be committing substantial funds, paying Brown $52.3 million, Jayson Tatum $34.8 million, recently acquired Kristaps Porzingis $29.2 million, Malcolm Brogdon $22.5 million, and Derrick White $19.7 million. These five players will account for almost $160 million in salary that season.

Although the Celtics made it to the NBA Finals in 2022, they narrowly missed out on victory, losing to Miami in a hard-fought seven-game series during the 2023 Eastern Conference finals.
