Ex-Celtic Delivers Bold Take On Futures Of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown


February 11, 2020

Kendrick Perkins doesn’t need to see any more from Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown — in a good way.

In fact, the former Boston Celtic said he believes the duo already have proved their worth, and should remain with the franchise “for life.”

“I tweeted this and I meant this — Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum should retire as Celtics. They should be Celtics for life,” Perkins said during NBC Sports Boston ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center.

He added, jokingly: “Hey (Celtics president of basketball operations) Danny (Ainge), I know you hear me, all right?”

Both Tatum and Brown have been playing at an exceptional level this season, perhaps best depicted by their back-to-back Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors. Tatum, who scored 25+ points in five consecutive games entering Tuesday, is the most recent player to be honored.

The Celtics and Rockets tip off at 9:30 p.m. ET.
