Malcolm Brogdon’s relationship with the Boston Celtics is reportedly in “peril,” according to NBA insider Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.

The Celtics traded Brogdon to the Los Angeles Clippers before his medical evaluation caused the Clippers to back out of the trade.

Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla said there was a “healing process” going on with Brogdon back in July.

“There is a healing process, there is a listening process and to see where we are at and where we have to get to,” Mazzulla said, via Celtics reporter Jared Weiss of The Athletic. “We’ve had some conversations as an organization but at the same time, we understand that’s the situation that it was and as the healing process goes on, we will move forward as well as you can.”

Brogdon won the Sixth Man of the Year Award last season. He averaged 14.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 67 games for the Celtics while shooting 48.4% from the field, 44.4% from beyond the arc and 87.0% from the free-throw line.

The 2016-17 Rookie of the Year with the Milwaukee Bucks, Brogdon signed a two-year, $85 million contract extension with the Indiana Pacers in October 2021. He’ll make $22.5 million next season.

The Clippers re-engaged the Celtics about acquiring Brogdon, according to Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports. It looks like Boston rebuffed Los Angeles’ trade interest since Brogdon is still on the Celtics, who traded Marcus Smart to the Memphis Grizzlies and Grant Williams to the Dallas Mavericks and acquired Kristaps Porzingis from the Washington Wizards this summer.
