Kyrie Irving won’t consider signing an extension with the Boston Celtics as he continues his recovery from a season-ending knee injury.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Irving said agreeing to a contract “just doesn’t make any sense” right now, per ESPN.com’s Chris Forsberg. Irving went on to explain his focus will be elsewhere this summer:

“I think you guys can feel my attitude is really just redemption next year. Really integrating myself with our team again and really focus on winning a championship. That’s the only thing I’m really worried about. Until I get to that point, then I can’t really answer any questions. I’m pretty sure management and I will have a talk, but that talk won’t happen now.”
