Bad news for Boston fans: Veteran Al Horford is likely to bid farewell to the Celtics

While Kyrie Irving's future is still a big question mark, Celtics fans have to receive the news. It is known that important veteran striker Al Horford has prepared to "disappear" from TD Garden.

Initially, many believed that Al Horford would stay with the Boston Celtics club. The act of refusing to play the final year in the Player Option is just about to sign a new contract. However, everything happened in the opposite direction.

After skipping $30.1 million to play the 2019-20 season for Boston, Al Horford will not re-sign the Celtics to become a free player. The move will pave the way for him to join other teams in the upcoming NBA Free Agency. At the request of this 33-year-old player, he will need a contract from 3 to 4 years.

According to many reputable journalists in the transfer market, this is the result of the Boston Celtics not accepting the salary that Al Horford requires. The number that the veteran striker accepted to ignore in the old contract was $ 30.1 million, but the Celtics were supposed to offer much lower.

Instead, the blue-shirt team wants to ensure a better future for Al Horford by adding an extra year or two to the next contract. This choice clearly does not agree with the striker wearing the shirt 42.

In another incident-related tweet, journalist Adrian Wojnarowski also confirmed that the Boston Celtics had not been strong enough to retain the veteran striker to stay at TD Garden.

Al Horford played the last 3 seasons with Boston Celtics, scoring an average of 13.5 points with 7.0 rebounds per game. However, what this striker represents is far beyond the numbers on the statistics table.

The 2017-18 season, Horford appeared in the All-Star lineup and has always been the main piece to bring in deep season in the NBA Playoffs. In the 2018-19 season, Al Horford's win share was just behind Kyrie Irving.

But the Boston Celtics' future may turn dark. Especially when they just can't trade about Anthony Davis, just face the possibility of losing both stars like Kyrie Irving and Al Horford right this summer.
