On Tuesday morning, Horford, 30, participated in his first formal practice with the Celtics, navigating a breezy walkthrough that kicked off the team’s first two-a-day session of training camp. After spending his entire nine-year NBA career with the Atlanta Hawks, Horford was asked about stepping outside his comfort zone. “It’s definitely a weird feeling, but I feel good,” Horford said. “It feels right to be here. “I took a chance on coming here, because I believe in the type of guys we have here in the organization and the potential there is. So that’s why I’m here, and I have a lot of respect for a lot of these players.”

And the Celtics were in the thick of things for Durant as well, with Boston making the short-list of teams he did face-to-face interviews with during the free-agency period. “It was a nice to get Al. We tried to add another guy,” said Grousbeck in an oh-so-obvious reference to Durant. “We wished to add another guy. He decided to go elsewhere. We wish him the best.” As far as the Celtics are concerned, Grousbeck added, “We’re going to try and take another step forward this year. We’re excited about this team.”
