Free Agent Rumor: Celtics interested in Mozgov or Mahinmi as backup options

If Horford can’t be had, there are other big man options. On the eve of free agency, all signs point to the Celtics making pitches to Kevin Durant and Al Horford as their main options. Boston has room to sign both and rumblings indicate that the two would like to play together. Of course the Celtics will have a lot of competition for their services. In the (very likely) scenario that the Celtics can’t land either one, they’ll still be in the market for adding size to the roster. Steve Bulpett reports: The C’s will add a big man, most likely through free agency, but also possibly...

Thunder Trying To Trade Enes Kanter; Should The Blazers Step In?

As the Thunder prepare to convince Kevin Durant they are ready to win the Larry O'Brien trophy, they could be making room for another big name free agent. Should Portland get involved and trade for the player who agreed to be a Blazer last summer? The Oklahoma City Thunder could be looking to shed salary in order to make room for free agent big man Al Horford, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. Horford's acquisition would go a long way toward securing their own free agent, Kevin Durant, after trading starting power forward Serge Ibaka to the Orlando Magic. The most feasible way for the...

Oklahoma City set to pursue Al Horford for potential pairing with Kevin Durant, per report

Another bidder could be lining up for Al Horford, and this one is very dangerous. With rumors swirling that the Atlanta Hawks could be reluctant to offer Al Horford a five-year contract, the heat is only increasing when it comes to potential suitors to snatch away the All-Star big man. Teams like the Washington Wizards, Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic and Boston Celtics have been rumored to be involved, but for many in NBA circles, the real threats for Horford's services would appear to be coming from the Western Conference. Enter the Oklahoma City Thunder. Brian Windhorst of ESPN brings...

Atlanta Hawks "reluctant" to offer Al Horford five-year contract, per report

The Hawks may be unwilling to use the team's best leverage in order to keep Al Horford. Al Horford will hit the free agent market officially at 12:01 am ET on July 1, and for months, it has been well known that suitors will be lining up for his services. The Atlanta Hawks have long held the inside track according to most rumblings, though, largely because the team could offer more years and, by proxy, more money than any other franchise in the NBA. Zach Lowe of ESPN brings word, though, that Atlanta may not be rushing to offer Horford an elusive five-year contract. The Hawks are reluctant...

NBA Free Agency: Wizards connected to Nicolas Batum, Al Horford, Ryan Anderson

With the Wizards completely out of the chase for Kevin Durant, these three players are now their top targets in free agency. Kevin Durant's camp eviscerating any hope the Wizards would have the opportunity to sign him this offseason was not fun, but it was a positive for the Wizards. With their sights off of Durant, they had to move quickly elsewhere. And apparently they've set their top targets for when Friday's free agency frenzy begins. According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Wizards' top targets are Al Horford, Ryan Anderson and Nic Batum. Names that keep coming up as top targets for the...
