Jaylen Brown is ready to take the next step in his second NBA season, after being selected by the Boston Celtics with the third overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft.  The highly talented 6’7″ swingman is best-known for his athleticism and ability to throw down absurd dunks, and he did just that in the Celtics’ Summer League game on Sunday night.

Watch Brown throw down a vicious baseline jam over two Blazers defenders:

The Celtics are already in good shape to be better in 2017-18 with the additions of free-agent star Gordon Hayward and Duke product Jayson Tatum (No. 3 overall pick), and an improved Jaylen Brown could really help their chances to take down the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Brown is currently averaging 17.0 points and 10.5 rebounds for Boston’s Summer League squad.
