BOSTON (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Boston Celtics have signed forward Jaylen Brown to a four-year contract extension that could pay him as much as $115 million.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Monday because the deal had not yet been announced. The $115 million includes incentives, the person said.

The deal was first reported by ESPN.

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.

The sides faced a 6 p.m. deadline for the agreement and beat it by several hours.
