East Notes: Pacers, Myles Turner, Hawks, Celtics




Team president Brad Stevens recently defended guard/forward Jaylen Brown, saying that, yes, Brown is against antisemitism and hate speech.

“Jaylen has explicitly stated that he is against antisemitism and hate speech. Jaylen also has a strong history of using his platform to contribute positively to causes both local and national,” Stevens said, via Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe. “Regarding the Kyrie Irving suspension, Jaylen has stated that he feels that in his role as vice president of the union he should protect and support players’ rights.”

Brown is vice-president of the players’ union, and came under fire from some on social media after saying the union intended to appeal the length of Irving’s suspension in early November.
