Jaylen Brown accepts the highest-paying NBA contract ever, a $304 million extension and here is all about his NBA agent Jason Glushon along with his net worth and clients
Jaylen Brown, a star for the Boston Celtics, has agreed to a five-year, $304 million supermax agreement, which would be the most expensive contract in NBA history.

According to Brown’s agent, Jason Glushon, the agreement, which would keep the 26-year-old with the team through the end of the 2028–2029 season, was finalised on Sunday.
Last year, the two-time All-Star averaged career highs in points, rebounds, and assists (including 3.5 assists per game). However, those figures dropped during the postseason, when the Celtics fell to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals. In Game 7, Brown scored 19 points on 8 of 23 shots while making only 1 of 9 three-pointers. He qualified for the supermax extension because it was his first career honour to make the All-NBA second team.
In the 2016 NBA Draft, the Celtics selected Brown with the third overall pick. Since then, even though he is not generally regarded as a Top 10 player in the league, they have qualified for the playoffs each year. Although most people would say that four-time All-Star and NBA first-team selection Jayson Tatum is the Celtics’ top player, Brown is actually the team’s finest player overall. Tatum will qualify for a supermax extension the next year.

Who is Jason Glushon?
Jason Glushon is the president and founder of Glushon Sports Management, which bills itself as “A full service sports agency for a select group of athletes, from start to finish.” Glushon resides in the Californian county of Los Angeles. A week before graduating from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, Glushon, according to Forbes, quit his position with the powerful advertising agency Wasserman to launch his own business.
Al Horford’s four-year, $113 million contract and Jrue Holiday’s five-year, $126 million contract were two of the largest agreements in free agency at the time, which were negotiated by Glushon Sports Management, the company he founded with just himself and three other employees.
Glushon currently represents a number of well-known individuals in addition to Jaylen Brown, including Trevor Booker, Jamaree Bouyea, David Crisp, Spencer Dinwiddie, Donte DiVicenzo, and others.
■ Al Horford’s $113 million deal with the Boston Celtics in 2016.
■ Holiday’s $126 million with the Pelicans in 2017.
■ Horford’s $109 million with the 76ers in 2019.
■ Jaylen Brown’s $115 million extension with the Celtics in 2019.
Gloshon served as Arn Tellem’s assistant for Wasserman in 2006 before starting his own company. He was simultaneously trying to make it as a minor league baseball player for the Oakland Athletics. He retired from playing in 2009, and in 2013 he received certification as an NBA agent. Xavier Henry, a co-client at Wasserman, was his first client. Henry partnered with Glushon when he started his own business.
NBA agent Jason Glushon has quietly negotiated five deals valued at more than $100 million for his player clients in fewer than five years but his net worth isn’t known.
Born: Tarzana, Calif.
Education: Goizueta Business School at Emory University, B.B.A., major in operations management and decision information analysis, minor in communication; Loyola Law School, J.D.
Family: Wife, Dr. Lindsey Glucksman; children, Dylan (2), Milo (born earlier in June)
Glushon stated to Forbes five years ago that he always planned to create his own company, which would limit his tenure at Wasserman. Glushon said:
“I don’t think any split is a good split. Right now all is good, but things can change with the size of the deals I’ve been able to do.”
