The beginning of the end for the Jayson Tatum-Jaylen Brown pairing?

Fair point from Mr. Fisher here. It wasn’t too long ago that the Celtics were one of the most highly-promising young teams in the NBA. Since then, their development has stagnated and it has come to a point that there are now serious questions about this team’s core: “I think this is definitely the beginning of the end for the Jayson Tatum-Jaylen Brown pairing,” Fisher continued. “I don’t know if that will get broken up this season. But I think sometime in the next 12-18 months we’re really going start to hear about to hear the conversations about the future of Boston with Jaylen Brown heading out the door.” – via Paolo Songco @ Clutch Points

According to NBA insider Jake Fisher of Bleacher Report, certain developments within the team over the past few years (or the lack thereof) could eventually lead to the Celtics deciding to pull the plug on the Tatum-Brown duo in Boston: “I would say the early returns so far from what I’ve heard from around the league, there is not much interest in this former first-round picks that Boston has,” Fisher said, via SiriusXM NBA Radio. “From Payton Pritchard to Romeo Langford to Grant Williams. I think Aaron Nesmith probably has the highest value of that group. It’s difficult. That’s kind of why they’re in the situation that they’re in right now. They had draft pick after draft pick after draft pick, that hasn’t netted them anything more than back of the rotation type players. They haven’t really developed anybody outside of that besides Robert Williams, and they are where they are.” – via Paolo Songco @ Clutch Points

If the Celtics decide to change the roster around Tatum and Brown, former NBA executive turned ESPN NBA front office insider Bobby Marks believes they’ll have multiple avenues to work out a trade. “When you have teams that still have all their first-round picks, then you certainly have to circle them,” Marks said on “The Lowe Post.” “Then you have Josh Richardson and Marcus Smart, $30 million in contracts there, certainly Horford’s a big number. And then you’ve got a mix of all these former first-round picks, so there are things there to get a deal done. – via Boston Globe
