The Boston Celtics’ season may be over, but the offseason should prove to be equally, if not more entertaining than the regular season.
With plenty of activity waiting in the wings as July 1 approaches, SportsBetting.ag has posted prop bets for the futures of Kyrie Irving and Al Horford in a Celtics uniform. Both players have looming free agencies that will now take center stage following Boston’s elimination from the NBA playoffs.
Horford’s situation is a bit different from Irving’s, as the center can opt into his $30 million player option, if he chooses to. Irving also has a player option for next season, but the chances of him opting in, rather than signing an extension or becoming an unrestricted free agent, are extremely unlikely.
When it comes to Irving, SportsBetting favors the All-Star point guard to leave Boston for the Big Apple, with the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets sitting atop the odds.
