The Boston Celtics big man Al Horford has a $30.1 million player option for next season but both sides have been discussing a new deal, per Boston Herald:

“Horford has until Tuesday to opt in to $30,123,015 for next season, but the sides have been discussing a plan where he comes in at a lower number next season and gets two more years tacked on in a new deal. It’s not known whether the way things have played out over the last couple of weeks will have an effect on Horford’s outlook.”

Last season, Harford averaged 13.6 points, 4.2 assists and 6.7 rebounds per game, while shooting at 53.5 percent from the field.
