 League source confirms PF Al Horford  has verbally committed to signing with the LA Clippers on a 4 year max contract.


I don't know how credible this is but how can any FA have already committed to any team ? Am i missing something?

I suppose anybody can commit to anything, illegal or not.

No team is giving Horford a max contract though.  Rumors are that hed get $25 to $28 million. A max is about $10 million more per year  than that.

As much as it would suck to lose Horford, if he joined the Clippers and then Kawhi/KD followed him there (KD starting in 2020-2021 and beyond obviously due to injury), and then they beat up on their crosstown rivals the Lakers for the following years to come, I'd be all for it!  8)

 Horford doesnt deserve the max contract. Hes older and isnt a max player anymore. Great leader but not worth the commitment

I would love that, but am not sure Horford at near max dollars is going to do it for anybody. It worked quite well for us because we were able to go far above the cap. The Clippers would be quite good if they added Kawhi and Horford, but I am afraid Lebron/AD is going to be too much for them. LAC's rotation players should be able to outplay LAL's, but LAL is definitely not done.

I don't care what happens next year, I just don't want to see LAL win the championship.

Welp, hopefully Horford gets the money and destroys the Lakers 4 times a year under Doc.
