ANALYSIS: The Tatum-Brown pairing has been heavily scrutinized by fans due to the Celtics' lackluster season, but it makes sense that the team would look to keep one of the best wing duos in the league intact. Tatum and Brown are each averaging over 24 points and 6 rebounds per game. Charania did add that the Celtics appear "open for business" regarding trades with other players.
