The Boston Celtics entered the 2022-2023 NBA Season with high expectations.
Many expected them to compete for the title, avenging their NBA Finals loss from the previous year.
While they came close, the Celtics fell to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
They are slated to be one of the Eastern Conference’s top teams again this season given their current roster construction.
However, as Gary Washburn has reported via Legion Hoops, one of their key role-players could be upset with the organization.
REPORT: Malcolm Brogdon’s relationship with the Celtics could be in peril, per @GwashburnGlobe.

When talking about Malcolm Brogdon, Washburn said, “We’ve heard nothing and he’s angry with the team.”
According to Spotrac, Brogdon is tied to the Celtics for two more seasons and is owed over $22 million in each of those years.
He has been a valued role player for the organization alongside Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.
Despite his carved-out role on the roster, it appears Brogdon might not be happy with the organization as a whole.
This is a developing story, one that is likely to reveal additional details in time.
For now, Celtics fans might be worried about Brogdon and his potential future with the team.
With slightly more than a month until the NBA Season begins, players on the Celtics’ roster will need to get themselves on the same page.
If Brogdon is unhappy with the team, this could lead to a disjointed locker room, which could lead to dysfunction on the court.
