Al Horford’s experience lasted exactly one season in Philadelphia.

76 players have agreed to trade Horford for Thunder in Oklahoma City for Danny Green, ESPN’s Adrian Woynarowski said Wednesday.

As part of this agreement, Philadelphia will also celebrate its 34th anniversary on Wednesday evening. Place in the design of the NBA, the first slightly limited round of 2025 and send the design of the rights to the Serbian security agent Vasily Micic in Oklahoma City.

Thunder’s gonna send Terrance Ferguson’s guard to the Sixers with Green.

Last summer, 34-year-old Horford signed a $109 million contract for four years with Philadelphia as a free agent, as the Sixers hoped the combination of the divestment of his blood rivals, the Boston Celtics, and the combination with Joel Ambiad, whom he has always kept effective as a member of the Celtics, would pay off. Instead, they were clumsy from the start and never got better, so much so that Horford was taken off the starting line for the first time in his career in favour of sophomore student Shake Milton.

Protocol 619 887
It’s all over. Efficiency 103.1 109.4

Network efficiency -0.5 +8.7

The deal also provides Sixers with significant financial savings – more than $25 million combined with payroll tax and luxury goods, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

This is the first step the new basketball president Daryl Morey has taken since he arrived in Philadelphia this month after 13 years at the helm of the Houston Rockets.

Later in the night of the project, the Seas and Sixers also treated Josh Richardson and the 36th Sea. version of the project for the Dallas Mavericks and also bought the defender of Seth Curry, Doc Rivers’ son-in-law.

Green, 33, now trading twice a week. It was part of an agreement that ended Wednesday night that sent security guard Dennis Schroeder from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles.

The three-time champion, whose last two seasons with the Toronto Raptors and Toronto Lakers, Green, who shot 40 percent to three points in his career, will offer Philadelphia two things she desperately needs: a better positioning game than Horford and a shot to position herself around stars Ben Simmons and Ambide.

Thunder made three deals last week, all of which brought the franchise back to the first round.
