Horford opted out, and it seemed he could return to Boston. But more than a week before free agency officially began, a report emerged he’d leave the Celtics while expecting a four-year, $100 million contract elsewhere. He committed to the 76ers on the first day of free agency, getting $97 million guaranteed and up to $109 million over four years.
What did Horford make of tampering allegations coming from Boston, where Danny Ainge runs the front office?
Horford on The Dan Patrick Show:
It’s pretty ridiculous. But it is what it is. Danny – I love Danny. Danny was always really good to me. I know that he’s definitely frustrated with things didn’t work out with us.
Notice the lack of a denial.
Though Boston’s specific complaints don’t hold water, there are legitimate issues with the wider landscape.
