Washburn said on CLNS Media Celts Coup podcast that Brogdon was “mad at the team.”

“I wasn’t happy in July,” Washburn said. “Is he the same level of unhappiness in September? We don’t know. He hasn’t spoken all summer…Malcolm Brogdon wasn’t happy with the deal or the potential deal. He was angry.”

Boston’s first attempt to acquire Kristaps Porziņģis saw Brogdon go to the Los Angeles Clippers. However, the Clippers backed out of the deal. reportedly due to concerns about the 30-year-old’s health after he played with an elbow injury at the end of last season.

While the Celtics eventually landed Porziņģis, that wasn’t the end of the story. Head coach Joe Mazzulla acknowledged in July that there was a “healing process” between Brogdon and the team.

That coincided with a July 20 report from Heavy Sports’ Steve Bulpett, who cited a source claiming the Celtics indicated to other franchises that Brogdon is “a valuable member of their team.” To that end, they were not actively seeking to change it at this time.

Especially with the departure of Marcus Smart, Brogdon hopes to maintain an important role on defense. Keeping him happy and fully engaged is important to Mazzulla and his staff.

Perhaps the 6’5″ guard can consult with teammate Jaylen Brown on how to handle staying after being at the center of trade rumors.
