Examining the 33 recent free agents who will make more money than the league MVP next season.
Now that Kevin Durant is a Warrior, will anyone be able to challenge them?
Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics made the most significant free agent signing in the Celtics long history today, signing 30-year old C/PF Al Horford, one of the top free agents on the market.
The Celtics met with Al Horford last night and reportedly offered him a max contract. He also met with the Rockets, Wizards, and the Hawks, even after signing Dwight Howard, are still trying to find a way to bring Horford back. Boston needs Horford to have a shot at Durant.
Al Horford was mentioned in trade rumors at the deadline this past season, and everyone knows the Celtics need talent in the frontcourt along with some veteran leadership. Horford would provide both those things, but would he leave Atlanta to join the quickly ascending Celtics?
