The Boston Celtics and wing Jaylen Brown have agreed to a five-year, $304m (£236m) contract extension, setting a record for the richest deal in NBA history.

Brown's agent, Jason Glushon, confirmed the agreement on Tuesday.

The Athletic said the supermax contract extension is fully guaranteed with a trade kicker and no player option.

Brown, 26, has one year remaining on his current contract before the extension kicks in for the 2024-25 season. He will earn $28.5m in the upcoming season.

His deal will surpass the current contract of Nikola Jokic, a two-time league Most Valuable Player who signed a five-year, $276m contract with the Denver Nuggets.

The Celtics selected Brown with the No 3 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Last season, he set career highs in points (26.6) and rebounds (6.9) per game to go with 3.5 assists over 67 games, and shot 49.1 per cent from the floor.
