    Horford agreeing to join the squad is a great first move to attract Durant. This is the motive of meeting with Horford day 1.

    That's my thoughts as well. If they can get Horford early in FA, they have a good shot at Durant afterwards.

    LETS FUKIN GOOO!

    I think as for the Thunder horford is only slightly better than kanter and they will have to lose alot of their depth to land him. Okc may be better off with kanter instead of Horford

    interesting. I will be happy to eat crow if we sign him and that opens the door to a KD meeting. Horford by himself won't be enough to get us where we need to be next year, but it's a good start.

    Great news. Getting him early will definitely attract more top free agents.

    I could definitely live with giving Horford the max, I think giving it to Conley or giving a huge contract to Anderson would handcuff the franchise.

    Horford is a LOT better than Kanter when you factor defense into the equation. Kanter is one of the worst defenders in the league.

    DMO and Horford would be a killer combo! D'Antoni could inflate Horford's stats big time

    My opinion has always been that we already had our meeting with Durant when Harden was hanging out with him. We have an agreement if we sign horford then Durant will sign too.
    Why wast time setting up a meeting with Durant when our main objective is to sign horford first.
    Durant is playing his part setting up all these meetings to weigh his backup options and to give the rockets the time needed to sign hortford and trade some players away for more cap room.

    He might be THE worst considering the position he plays.

    It is sad because I instantly thought this. Instantly. Tomorrow will be crazy with all the fakes, frauds, and phonies out there.

    Woj or GTFO.
