BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Celtics have agreed to terms with forward Paul Pierce on a three-year contract extension worth almost $60 million, according to a newspaper report.

Terms of the extension, which is subject to league approval, weren't released, but the Boston Herald reported on its Web site that the deal will be for three years and almost $60 million.

Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss confirmed on Thursday that the team was talking to Pierce about an extension that would keep him in Boston beyond the 2007-08 season, when he has a player option for about $16 million. Twiss said the deal would not be finalized until the league had approved it.

Also Thursday, the Celtics said Pierce is scheduled to have minor surgery on his left elbow in August. He should be ready for the start of training camp.
