    Do we even want a player dumb enough to think a team led by Harden can give him a chance at a title?

    Capela for horford? Or cp3?

    He's 32. Has a player option for $30 mil. We gonna max him?

    I think he'd be an upgrade over Capela.

    I hear u but it’s not like Capela is a cornerstone player. If our window is Harden’s prime we just need players that can help us maximize that window. Idk about but i would gladly suck for 5 or 6 years if it means winning a ship next season..

    Horford can used his 1 year option. Like CP3 did.
    Afther this Boston can trade him to the Rockets.

    I don’t think he helps us at all honestly.

    Only a joke buddy. Made the same joke when we were about to get CP3.

    Seems like every year you get the Harden hater jackasses who know for a fact no one decent is ever going to come play with a “ball hog choker” like Harden.

    Ridiculous garbage.

    If players such as CP3 or Al Horford are interested in a Harden led team it really says a lot about the “no one wants to play with Harden” crowds take on the matter.

    which he'll likely decline if a new multiyear contract is offered

    Fits the mold of a stretch five better than Jordan, I'd be on board. Sign and trade Capela for Horford and Brown. He needs to decline that 30 mil option though, Daryl can only overpay one diminishing asset

    I'm not putting stock in the rumor, but just to entertain it...

    Horford would need to opt in, so it's 48 hours or less that he has left to make that decision.

    He's older and that's concerning, but he's smart, great defensive player and could fit in just about every lineup. He should be good against Draymond. Rockets had him as their #1 target in 2016.

    Age and salary gives the edge to Capela, imo. I would think the Rockets would need more.

    Only problem is he’s gonna be 30 Million dollars next year. That’s not worth it
