Welcome to Boston, Jaylen Brown.
The Celtics announced Wednesday that they officially signed five more players, including Brown, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. The other four players — Gerald Green, Tyler Zeller, Demetrius Jackson and Ben Bentil — all were rumored to have signed with the C’s over the weekend.
Boston didn’t disclose any information about the five players’ contracts, but previous reports indicated Zeller’s deal is for two years and $16 million, while Green agreed to the veteran’s minimum for one season. Other reports indicated Jackson, the 45th pick in this year’s draft, agreed to a four-year, $5.5 million contract, while Bentil, the 51st pick, signed for three years, the first of which is partially guaranteed.
