BOSTON - Team president Danny Ainge, speaking prior to the Celtics Shamrock Foundation's annual gala, said he has had talks this month with Avery Bradley's representatives about extending the 6-foot-2 guard's contract.

Ainge declined to address where those talks stand now, but all indications are that both sides will wait until Bradley becomes a restricted free agent this summer to work out a new deal.

Bradley, who is due to earn $2.51 million this season,  has also remained mum on the topic, preferring to instead focus on doing his part to help the Celtics through this transition period.

"I really don't focus on that," Bradley said earlier when asked about his impending free agency if a contract extension isn't reached. "I just focus on winning games, doing what I can do for my team. I can't wait for the season start."

The gala is sponsored by New England Baptist Hospital.
