NBA exec on Al Horford extension: 'This is definitely a hometown discount, like Dirk Nowitzki or Tim Duncan'

The consensus around the league is that Horford, even at his advanced age, left money on the table to remain with the Celtics. “I think he could have got more,” the executive said. “This is definitely a hometown discount, it’s like Dirk (Nowitzki) or Tim Duncan (both signed team-friendly contracts late in their careers). But, look, the teams with money next year are mostly young teams. So maybe Horford was looking at the landscape and saw who had cap space and wound up saying, ‘I do not want to go to Houston, man.’ It is a win for both sides, really, but if he wanted to chase money, he could have gotten more.”
