Video: Brad Stevens talks Muscala trade and Jaylen Brown injury
Brad Stevens met the press before Friday night's Celtics game with the Hornets. Stevens discusses why the Celtics made the Mike Muscala acquisition and the trade deadline in gerneral, Jaylen Brown's injury (he won't need surgery), and controlling Jayson Tatum's minutes load.
Stevens made a point to repeatedly mention how he didn't want to acquire a player who needed a lot of minutes, since it would affect the minutes of the current players.
"He's not in an easy situation, but he's really appreciated here."— Celtics on NBC Sports Boston (@NBCSCeltics) February 11, 2023
