Horford agreed while the meeting with Kevin Durant was still going on, according to Sam Amick:
And talk about timing: I'm told the Celtics meeting with Kevin Durant in the Hamptons is still going as we speak (tweet).— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) July 2, 2016
And Horford elected to use 18 shamrocks. Coincidence?
18 Shamrocks. Next #Celtics #NBA championship will be 18th in franchise history. https://t.co/Ei6sx7Qzon— Scott Souza (@Scott_Souza) July 2, 2016
Now all KD has to do is hear the news and bolt for Boston. Either way the Celtics improve dramatically with Horford in the mix and should jump to a lock for a top 4 seed in the 2016-2017 season.
