According to reports, and Horford’s on Twitter account, Atlanta Hawks’ free agent big man Al Horford has verbally agreed to a 4-year deal with the Boston Celtics worth $113 million. The deal is a max contract.
Horford pared down his choices on Saturday morning to the Celtics and the Wizards. By this afternoon, a deal was reached with the Celtics.
The 30 year old could only return to Atlanta if he accepted the Hawks’ latest offer and if the team made a series of moves to get under the salary cap.
Horford had been negotiating a 5-year deal with the Hawks, but for some reason the talks stalled.
More details as they unfold.
