It appears the Celtics have a good chance at landing free agent Al Horford.

According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics and the Wizards have become the favorites to sign Horford. The forward could sign a four-year, $113-million contract with the Celtics, as they were expected to issue a maximum offer. 

The Boston Herald added the Celtics “have a really good chance to get him.” The organization met with Horford on Friday night and apparently the meeting went well.

The Celtics and the rest of the NBA will likely know what Horford decides Saturday night as that is what he’s telling teams, this according to The Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

Let free agency begin. After it was reported by ESPN.com Marc Stein that the Celtics would be meeting with free agent forward Kevin Durant Saturday in the Hamptons, news comes that the get-together is just part of what figures to be a busy weekend for the Celts. Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports that Al Horford is slated to meet with the Celtics on Friday, with the power forward also slated to hear a pitch from Houston the same day.

Wojnarowski goes on to report that Atlanta is prepared to offer Horford a five-year deal, but not at max contract money. Multiple teams, he reports, are willing to give Horford four-year deals at max money.

ESPN’s Chris Broussard also reports that Dwight Howard will be meeting with four teams, two of which will be Atlanta and Boston, both Friday and Saturday.

Report: Celtics not planning aggressive pursuit of free agent Dwight Howard 06.30.16 at 11:25 am ET
By   |  Comments Off on Report: Celtics not planning aggressive pursuit of free agent Dwight Howard

Las Vegas recently labeled the Celtics the favorites to land former All-Star center Dwight Howard, but reporters covering the team are hearing a different story.

Himmelsbach covers the Celtics for the Globe, and frankly, his version of events makes more sense than a rabid pursuit of Howard, who has aged very quickly, even though he’s only 30. The eight-time All-Star averaged just 13.7 points last season for the Rockets, the lowest total since he put up 12 a game as a 19-year-old rookie in 2004-05.

Also, after missing just three games in his first six seasons, Howard has broken down in recent years, missing 63 games over the last three seasons.

For his career, he averages 17.8 points, 12.7 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks a game. There’s a question of how he’d fit in the system of Celtics coach Brad Stevens, since Howard is a back-to-the-basket post player who doesn’t stretch defenses.

Howard recently declined his $23.2 million player option with the Rockets to become a free agent.
