Horford To Turn Free Agent

BOSTON (AP BOSTON (AP) -- A person familiar with the decision says Boston Celtics center Al Horford will decline his player option for next season and become an unrestricted free agent. A five-time All-Star, the 33-year-old Horford joins point guard Kyrie Irving, who will also not exercise his option to remain in Boston for the final year of his current contract. Horford signed a four-year, $113 million deal in 2016.
Among the preseason favorites in the Eastern Conference before last season, the Celtics finished the regular season 49-33.
Horford was one of Boston's steadiest players throughout, averaging 13.9 points and nine rebounds in the postseason.
