Rockets to meet with Al Horford

- NBA sources confirmed for FOX 26 Sports that the Houston Rockets will meet with center Al Horford on Friday.

Horford will officially become a free agent Thursday night at 11 p.m. Central Time.

With Dwight Howard opting out and can sign elsewhere, the Rockets are in need of adding a big-time center, if possible.

Horford has spent his entire nine-year NBA career with the Atlanta Hawks.

He is a four-time NBA All-Star, making the team the past two seasons.

Also, the Rockets made a qualifying offer of $3.4 million to forward Donatas Motiejunas, making him a restricted free agent, which gives the Rockets the right to match any offer he gets.

The Rockets did not make a qualifying offer to forward Terrence Jones.
