Al Horford is back with the Boston Celtics, and he seems pretty happy about it.

The Oklahoma City Thunder center was traded Friday, along with center Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round pick, to the Celtics in exchange for point guard Kemba Walker, a 2021 first-round pick (No. 16 overall) and a 2025 second-round pick.

Horford reacted to the trade on social media with the following Instagram post, which notes that he has "Unfinished Business" in Boston.

He also retweeted Friday morningΒ a tweet posted in 2016 soon after he signed with the Celtics as a free agent:

Horford played for the Celtics from 2016-17 through 2018-19 before leaving to join the Philadelphia 76ers as a free agent in July of 2019. The Celtics were a very good team with Horford and made the Eastern Conference Finals twice in his three seasons in Boston.

His on-court production, and leadership on and off the floor will certainly help the Celtics during the upcoming 2021-22 season.
