Brown is currently in the final year of his rookie deal, which he signed after being drafted third overall by Boston in the 2016 NBA Draft. His current contract is set to pay him just over $6.5 million this season.

The new contract comes days after reports emerged that Brown had rejected a four-year, $80 million extension with the team.

About to enter his fourth season with the Celtics, Brown has averaged 11.2 points per game in his NBA career, per the team. He has played in 70 or more games in each year of his career.

The Celtics signing of Brown goes along with their decision to pick up the fourth-year option on Jayson Tatum's contract, keeping the fellow young star in Boston for at least two more seasons. That decision was announced at the beginning of last week.
