Al Horford won't be lured by Kings' 'massive' offer

The Sacramento Kings are prepared to make a "massive offer" to free-agent forward Al Horford when free agency tips off tonight, according to Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee.

There's at least some mutual interest between the two parties.

When Horford, 33, opted out of the final year of his contract with the Boston Celtics, the New York Times reported that Horford had a four-year deal worth more than $100 million awaiting him on the free-agent market.

Horford will likely sign with a different team once National Basketball Association free agency commences, according to The Athletic.

Horford may also be waiting to see where other pieces land. The Bee writes that while Horford was garnering attention from multiple teams, he didn't have any meetings scheduled with them once it opens. The Kings make a lot of sense at first glance since they have plenty of space and Horford would be a ideal fit next to their young bigs and a great pairing with De'Aaron Fox, but Horford is also likely looking to join a contender. In 2017 they spent considerable money on greybeards Zach Randolph and Vince Carter.

Horford averaged 13.6 points, 6.7 boards, 4.2 assists, and 1.3 blocks per contest across 68 appearances last season.
