The Boston Celtics and Al Horford agreed to extend the player's contract for another two seasons at a rate of twenty million dollars.
An agreement that ratifies the commitment that unites both parties and that shows how comfortable the Dominican interior is in the Massachusetts organization.
This has been recognized by the player himself, who confirmed that the personal stability he has in Boston and the high expectations of the group completely facilitated the decision.

“I really wanted to continue to be a part of what we have here. I felt it when I came back last year. I felt the strides the group started to make and how we keep moving in the right direction.”
“I feel like there's a real purpose to winning and the group we have is really good. I am happy and we know that we have a lot of work ahead of us. But this kind of stability is hard to find,” she finished.
In the current 2022-23 season, Horford will pocket a total of 26 million dollars, while his new contract will keep him linked to the Celtics until he turns 39.
Previously, the veteran had already defended the Boston jersey for three seasons between 2016 and 2019. His numbers this season amount to 10,9 points, 6,3 rebounds and 2,8 assists in 31,3 minutes.
