Much has been made about Kyrie Irving’s future with the Boston Celtics, but Al Horford’s status with the team moving forward is also uncertain.
Horford is due just over $30 million in 2019-2020, but can opt-out of his contract at the conclusion of this season. It remains to be seen what Horford will do, but it sounds like the Celtics big man wants to stick around:
If Horford chooses to stay under his current contract, it would be the final year of his four-year, $113 million deal with the Celtics.
Horford tweeted out a thank you to Celtics fans after Wednesday’s series-ending loss to Milwaukee.
Sorry Celtics fans. We came up short of our goal. But I do appreciate your support all season. This one hurts... Go Celtics!— Al Horford (@Al_Horford) May 9, 2019
