Breaking: Al Horford Agrees To Sign With Celtics

The Boston Celtics have landed Al Horford. It seemed that the big man would re-sign with the Atlanta Hawks, but he's elected to join the Celtics in a chaotic free agency battle. 

Horford had reportedly been close to striking a deal with the Hawks after a late push. 

Horford confirmed the deal on Twitter.

The Hawks reportedly offered Horford a five-year, $136 million deal. He's getting an over extra million per year with Boston. The Washington Wizards were also in the mix for Horford, but it's the Celtics who have landed the top-tier player they've been looking for this offseason. The addition of Horford could help the team in their pursuit of Kevin Durant, although the Thunder are still the favorites.
