It is believed that the Celtics are not willing to include Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum in a deal for Kawhi Leonard.
Tatum is obviously not going to be included in any trade as he has played himself into the untouchable range. The belief that Brown was not available was surprising as he has been the name most mentioned in any Celtics trade rumors. This is mainly due to the fact that the Celtics have not gotten any medical reports on Leonard combined with Leonard's desire to play in Los Angeles. If Leonard was to sign an extension as a part of a trade to Boston then it is much more likely that they would include Brown or any of their very valuable draft picks, but that is speculation.
