Al Horford free agency rumors: Kings may make aggressive play for big man

Boston Celtics' Al Horford.

The Kings are one of several teams interested in Al Horford and they could make a big play to land the center.

The Kings are one of several teams interested in Al Horford and they could make a big play to land the center.

According to ESPN, Sacramento is one of several teams that could offer Horford the four-year, $100 million deal he is reportedly seeking in free agency.

The team very well could go after the now-former Celtics center who is also being pursued by the Mavericks, Pelicans and 76ers.

If the Kings are going to go after Horford, though, they will have to part ways with Willie Cauley-Stein.

That isn’t a bad thing though because Cauley-Stein has reportedly been trying to leave Sacramento for a while now.

Horford opted out of his final year with the Celtics and believes he is in line for a big contract.

ESPN corroborates that idea as it reports there are so many teams after the big man there could be a bidding war which drives up the price.

Horford joins Kyrie Irving in likely leaving the Celtics this offseason.

Boston has now moved on to focusing on Kemba Walker in free agency, according to multiple reports.
