Al Horford is Once Again a Boston Celtic

Two Al Horford posts in two days.

That’s crazy! (as the guy from the Jim Sipala Kia commercials would say) –

Why do we care?

Because the Celtics have been a pain in the ass for years, and Sixers fans should keep an eye on what they’re doing in the newly-minted post-Danny Ainge era.

Dumping Kemba Walker for Al Horford gives the Celtics the same two more years of beefy contract, but Horford is set to earn $10 million less than Walker, so there’s a lot more flex there. OKC picks up yet another 1st round pick and Boston gets an interesting young center who is worth more than the 16th pick. The Celtics really lacked on the interior after Horford and Aron Baynes departed, so this gets them out of the Kemba money and beefs them up on the inside.

Alright, that’s it. Now let’s get it back to the Eagles.
