Rumor: Sixers have some level of interest in Al Horford, Danny Green and Malcolm Brogdon
Both Horford and Green become unrestricted free agents this summer, while Brogdon becomes a restricted free agent, meaning the Milwaukee Bucks can match any offer sheet should the 2017 Rookie of the Year sign one with another team this offseason.
Don’t be surprised if the Sixers attempt to pursue Boston’s Al Horford, Milwaukee’s Malcolm Brogdon, and Toronto’s Danny Green among others if they don’t bring all of their top free agents back. The team has some level of interest in all three players.
Horford declined his $30.1 million player option with the Boston Celtics. The Sixers would have to come with a big money offer if they want to sign the All-Star big man. The Sixers also have to take into account Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris and J.J. Redick’s free agencies. All three players become unrestricted free agents. Butler and Harris will command max money on the open market.
Brogdon will surely get a few lucrative offer sheets this summer. The Sixers want to bring Butler, Harris and Redick back, but it’s clear they have some contingency plans already in place.
