UPDATE, Saturday, 10:25 a.m.: Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports that the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks are potential landing spots for Horford, with a possible Horford and Kawhi pairing in Los Angeles.
The two teams I've been hearing from last Monday for Al Horford are the Clippers and Dallas. Still think the Clips make the most sense, especially if they can land Kawhi Leonard. Dallas might be shaky on a fourth year for Al, who turned 33 earlier this month.— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) June 22, 2019
Al Horford stunned the Celtics this week with his decision to seek a contract elsewhere after he opted out and appeared ready to return with a restructured deal.
Reports of a four-year, $100-plus million offer awaiting Horford, 33, away from Boston emerged in the wake of the decision.
According to ESPN's Jackie MacMullan, the offer from the Celtics was a four-year one that was "pretty healthy."
“I think the Celtics made him a good offer. I can’t tell you what it was, but I do think that they did make him a four-year offer that was a pretty healthy one,” MacMullan told ESPN colleague Brian Windhorst on his Hoop Collective Podcast.
MacMullan said one team interested in Horford is the Dallas Mavericks. Said Windhorst, "Four years, $112 million is the number floating around."
Marc Stein of the New York Times, who earlier had reported that a $100-plus million offer would be there for Horford when free agency begins June 30, doubled down on that Friday but said such a deal wouldn't be coming from Dallas.
Numerous teams and agents believe Al Horford has a four-year offer awaiting him in free agency worth an estimated $112 million. Sources with knowledge of the Mavericks’ thinking continue to insist that such a deal will NOT be coming from Dallas. Free agency starts in eight days— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) June 21, 2019
