Jaylen Brown has established himself as one of the NBA’s most explosive in-game dunkers.
Now, it appears he may be interested in taking those skills to the next level at the Slam Dunk Contest.
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Brown is “seriously considering” participating in the contest.

The NBA will announce the full list of participants later this week, and Charania believes Brown is in the mix.
“Brown has been mulling over the possibility for several weeks and appears to be very much in play,” Charania said.
Brown is an All-Star, so he’ll already be in Indianapolis.
