Florio: No rift among Jets staff, all wanted Tebow

So now we know Tim Tebow is going to the New York Jets. We didn't know that with certainty this morning, but Mike Florio knew that the Jets were very interested.

"In New York with the Jets, in the biggest media market in the world, where he won't be the starter, but he'd play a decent amount -- who knows what'll happen down the road if Mark Sanchez can't get it together," Florio said on the Dan Patrick Show.

"Everybody, the front office, the coaching staff, they're all on board. There's no rift. There's no split of opinion. They all want him. Maybe he's at the point now where he wants to go somewhere where the organization wants him."

The video above also has what is maybe the best Tebow-to-the-Jets joke to date.

Ever picture how Tebow and cornerback Antonio Cormartie will get along? Florio had already envisioned their first little chat. Speaking as Tebow, he had the whole DP Show crew cackling.

"I know the Bible says be fruitful and multiply, but Antonio, you gotta put the brakes on."

Report: Celtics hoping to sign Horford, bring him to Durant meeting

Report: Celtics hoping to sign Horford, bring him to Durant meeting

The Celtics met with Al Horford Friday and it appears they’re trying to get him to sign before their meeting on Saturday with Kevin Durant.

Multiple outlets have already suggested that theory, but Basketball Insiders’ Alex Kennedy tweeted late Friday that’s actually what the Celtics are attempting to do. It's similar to what the Suns tried last summer by signing Tyson Chandler and then bringing him to their meeting with LaMarcus Aldridge. They almost did have Aldridge signed, but he changed his mind over the 48 hours between his meeting and his decision.

Unfortunately for the Celtics, it sounds like Horford wants to take the weekend before deciding, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

If the Celtics are able to get Horford agree to a max contract Friday, it’d likely be a huge boost to their chances of signing Durant. But they might have to wait a bit.
