BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Celtics say they have signed forward Jaylen Brown to a contract extension.
The four-year deal could pay him as much as $115 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.
The total includes incentives, according to the person who spoke on the condition of anonymity because terms of the deal were not announced.
The extension was first reported by ESPN. The sides faced a 6 p.m. deadline for the agreement and beat it by several hours.
The third overall pick in the 2016 draft, Brown has averaged 11.2 points and four rebounds in three seasons. He also played for the U.S. team in this summer's World Cup.
