SAN FRANCISCO -- Now that he has a stock tied to his football career, San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is thinking more like a CEO looking out for his shareholders interests, as well as for himself. Thats among the reasons why Davis wants the 49ers to pay him more money even though he still has two years still left on his current contract. The deal, originally signed in 2010, calls for him to make about $10 million through the National Football Leagues 2015 season. "I feel like its the right time to get an extension," Davis said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press. His remarks came shortly before the 49ers announced they had given their star quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, a six-year contract extension through the 2020 season for a reported $110 million. If Davis secures a longer contract too, it will be a boon for investors who bought a stake in his football career through an unusual tracking stock from Fantex Inc. The San Francisco company paid Davis $4 million in return for 10 per cent of his future earnings from football, commercial endorsements and other jobs that he may get during the remainder of his life because of his success in sports. Investors who own any of the 421,000 shares of Fantex tracking stock tied to Davis will also benefit from his success through dividends and potential appreciation in the stocks price. Davis tracking stock climbed $1.20 Wednesday to $11.20, slightly above its initial public offering price of $10. The shares have traded as high as $12.50 since their debut on Fantexs online exchange in late April. The IPO minted Davis, an eight-year veteran of the 49ers, as the first professional athlete to be traded like a stock. "Everyone loves me right now," Davis said. "They just want to talk to me. They want to hug me. ...You get a lot of people who say, Ive got stock in you." Although Fantex completed the IPO of the tracking stock five weeks ago, U.S. securities regulations prohibited Davis from publicly discussing the investment until Wednesday. Not long after he was able to talk about the stock, Davis said he fielded calls from 49er teammates Justin Smith, Vance McDonald and C.J. Spillman inquiring about his arrangement with Fantex. For now, business comes before football for Davis, who is considered to be among the best tight ends in the game. He caught a career-best 13 touchdowns last season. But Davis, 30, already has played nearly three times longer than the average NFL career of three seasons. He said he wants to play "until my toes fall off" and hopes to spend his entire career with the 49ers. The big question now is whether the 49ers will acquiesce to his demands for a longer contract. As part of his negotiating tactics, Davis skipped the 49ers voluntary team workouts this week. His absence cost him a $200,000 bonus. Davis will be aiming to make that money back in his contract extension, although he declined to say how much he is seeking. In an appraisal made leading up to the IPO, Fantex predicted Davis would land at least one more football contract worth $33 million. While Davis negotiates with the 49ers, Fantex is trying to sell tracking stocks tied to the careers of two other NFL players: Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel and Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu.

The Celtics played without leading scorer Jeff Green amid reports that the forward will be traded to Memphis in exchange for veteran Tayshaun Prince and a future first-round draft pick. Boston did deal Brandan Wright just prior to tip-off, sending the reserve center to Phoenix for a protected 2015 first- round choice. Despite their absences, the Celtics fought back from a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime on Avery Bradleys triple with 4.3 seconds to go in regulation. Roy Hibbert shook off a sprained ankle to lead the Pacers with 19 points and 11 rebounds, while C.J. Miles tallied 17 points off the bench and C.J. Watson finished with 15 along with eight boards. Bradley scored 16 of his game-high 23 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, but his efforts werent enough to prevent Bostons eighth loss in 10 games. After allowing the Celtics to make 12-of-18 shots during their fourth-quarter rally, Indiana tightened its defense in the extra session. Boston went just 4- of-14 in overtime, including four straight misses while clinging to a 103-102 lead. West, who failed to convert an easy layup in transition just moments earlier, atoned for the miscue by drawing a foul from Brandon Bass with time winding down and sinking both attempts to send the Pacers back in front. Bostons Evan Turner penetrated the lane on the ensuing possession and drew contact but no call, then threw up an errant off-balance shot that landed out of bounds to the Pacers. Miles followed with two successful free throws to put Indiana up by three, and the Pacers held on when Kelly Olynyk and Bradley both missed 3-point tries in the final seconds. A triple by Indianas Donald Sloan had the Celtics down 77-64 with 8 1/2 minutes to play in regulation, but Boston closed the gap by putting forth a 15-4 run. Bass, who finished with 17 points, began the surge with a 3-point play and later finished it with a beyond-the-arc basket that pulled the Celtics within 81-79 with 5:33 left.dddddddddddd Jared Sullingers trey with 1:27 to go gave Boston its first lead since the games initial stages at 90-89. Watson countered with a clutch step-back jumper on the other end, and Miles later made 1-of-2 from the line for a 92-90 advantage with 22.3 seconds showing. Turner was fouled on Bostons next trip down the court, but missed the front end before making the second. After two West free throws sent Indiana back ahead by three, Bradley drilled a 23-footer with Rodney Stuckeys hand in his face to bring on extra time. The Pacers missed eight of their first 10 shots, but regrouped to put together a 14-4 run to open up a 20-11 lead with three minutes remaining in the first quarter. Hibbert tallied 11 points for the opening frame, in which Indiana led by as many as a dozen. Boston was able to whittle the deficit down to five on an Olynyk 3-pointer midway through the second quarter. However, Miles buried back-to-back treys to spark an 8-2 stretch that gave the Pacers a 42-31 advantage with four minutes to go in the half. Indiana took a 46-37 lead into the break. The Celtics stayed within striking distance during a third quarter in which they trailed 65-60 at periods end, but Indiana began the fourth on a 12-4 tear.
