As first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Al Horford has agreed to a four-year, $109 million deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. The deal includes $97 million in guarantees and $12 million in bonuses tied to championships, Wojnarowski reports. The Celtics, per ESPN, were willing to offer Horford a four-year deal, but he opted for more money.

His was one of at least 11 deals worth at least $100 million agreed to on Sunday, one of the wildest spending days in league history.

Last season, the 33-year-old Horford averaged 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.3 blocks, shooting 53.5 percent from the field and 36.0 percent from deep — right in line with his career averages even as he played a career-low 29.0 minutes per game.
