The free-agent market for Al Horford is beginning to take shape. The expectation had always been that Al Horford would opt-out of his $30 million for this upcoming season, but it was heavily thought they he would definitely re-sign with the Boston Celtics.
That doesn’t look likely now.
The Dominican big man reportedly turned down a supposed three-year, $60-million offer from the Boston Celtics, because he believes a 4-year deal worth $100 million is out there for him.
Here are the teams that are expected to draw interest for him during free agency.
The Mavericks and Clippers can likely sign Horford outright into their available cap space, but the Lakers, after trading for Anthony Davis, would somehow have to convince him to take much less in order to join a contending team.
If somebody is willing to give you $100 million, then you’d take it each and every time.
