One Eastern Conference executive told Heavy.com Editor Sean Deveney, “What they do with Horford depends on what happens in the next few weeks, really”, but will the Boston Celtics pay to keep the band together or look for improvements?
The Celtics have a decision next month with Al Horford’s $26.5 million guaranteed contract. If they decide to cut the veteran before NBA free agency, the Celtics could save up to $14.5 million, keep their $17 million TPE that they acquired with the Evan Fournier sign-and-trade, and avoid the tax. Although, can the Celtics get any better with that money if it means costing Al Horford, who has been a key down the stretch and in the NBA Playoffs?
Heavy.com NBA Editor, Sean Deveney joins Celtics Beat with Adam Kaufman to discuss if the Celtics will pay to keep Al Horford next season.
