304 million in 5 years! Brown's top salary negotiation insider exposed, the Green Army's introduction of Boshen strength does not rise but falls?

Beijing time on July 21, according to Celtics reporter Brian Robb, although Green Army president Stevens is optimistic, considering that Jaylen Brown still did not reach a super maximum salary contract three weeks after the opening of free agency, it is still somewhat worrying. Sources reveal that there are still some issues to be resolved between the two sides, including whether the contract includes a trade margin and whether the fifth year is a player option. Woj previously reported that the Greens can give Brown a five-year contract of $304 million, with a final year's salary expected to reach $70 million.

Points of contention in the negotiation of the maximum salary between the two sides

When Brown's current contract expires, the Greens are the only team that can offer him a super top salary (35% of the salary cap and 8% annual salary increases), so this is a bargaining advantage for the Celtics who want to avoid getting Brown a fifth-year player option as much as possible and avoid including trade margin in new contracts.

The so-called trade kicker is a clause in the collective agreement. When a player signs with a team of choice, he can ask for a trading margin clause in the contract, so that if he is traded by the team during the contract period, he can get an additional compensation. This clause is good for the player, so many players try to get it when they sign a contract.

The Greens acquired Porzingis in June and extended his contract for another two years. Considering that Tatum is also about to sign a top salary, the total salary of the Green Army in the future will be very scary. In 2025-26, Tatum, Brown and Porzingis will collectively account for 90 percent of the team's salary cap.

It was previously reported that Brown has only played 7 years in the NBA, so he cannot get the right to veto a trade, and his focus is on getting more rights in other areas. Theoretically, if he can't get what he wants from the Celtics (player options, trade margin, etc.), then he can get tough with the Celtics and put the bet on himself.

Is the Green Army getting stronger or weaker?

Recently, another hot topic about the Green Army is whether they are stronger or weaker than last season?

Chris Mannix believes the Green Army's strength has declined because he is not optimistic about new signing Porzingis. "In my opinion, it's a step backwards because Smart, although flawed, you know his ability, Gwi didn't do well in the second half of the season, but he shot 41 percent from three-point range in the first half. Porzingis played well last season, but he played in a team with terrible results, now he has a long-term contract guarantee, and the Green Army is a team that needs him to integrate into the system to be hugely successful, and I am worried about whether he can fit in. ”

Contrary to Mannix's opinion, Thomas the "Smiling Assassin" believes that the Green Army has become stronger. He believes that Porzingis is the piece of the puzzle that the Green Army has long lacked, and he believes that the addition of Porzingis can help the Green Army eventually win the championship.
