The best international player in the history of each franchise

Boston Celtics

Al Horford, Dominican Republic

Following a fantastic stint as a member of the Hawks, Horford then joined the Boston Celtics prior to the 2016-17 season on a four-year, $113.3 million deal.

As a Celtic, the 6-foot-10 floor-spacer has averaged 13.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.0 assists nightly, while earning another All-Star bid, his fifth, this season.

Although Horford has been nothing short of a spectacular signing for Boston, the fact he’s already their best international player ever probably speaks more to the Celtics’ lack of luck with non-domestic players throughout their long history.
