BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Celtics reportedly have reached an agreement in principle to keep 38-year-old center Robert Parish, the oldest player in the NBA, on the team through next season.
Under the agreement, Parish would be paid $3.5 million, with a small amount deferrred, The Boston Globe said today.
Bob Woolf, who represents Parish, had sought a two-year contract, the Globe said, but Parish said he was satisfied with one year.
"I can live with that. I think it's fair," Parish said. "I'm really glad to have it done so I can get on with the rest of the season and not worry about it, and also so that I can enjoy my summer."
Parish has said he wants to play until he's 40.
