Boston Celtics big man Al Horford, responding to criticism for missing Monday night’s game in Miami after the birth of his second child, said Tuesday that he felt it was important to be there for his family.

“My family’s very important to me,” said Horford, who welcomed daughter Alia on Sunday. “I’m in more of a unique situation because this is our first year [in Boston] and my wife, we all moved in the middle of the pregnancy. And [there is] a lot going on. So I just felt like it was important for me to really be there, supporting her. And we have a son as well. So for her, it’s been a lot thrown at her these past few months.

“I know that it meant a lot for me to be there with her. … So I’m just very happy that the Celtics really take the time and they consider us not only as players but as people. And people that have families.”

The Philadelphia 76ers had internal discussions about packaging the No. 10 and 26 picks, along with former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, to move into the top five, league sources told The Athletic.

The target was Porter during these discussions. However, that thinking dampened with Porter’s back remaining a major question mark. If JJ Redick leaves in free agency, Fultz is the favorite to start at shooting guard.

[Tom] Thibodeau and [Karl-Anthony] Towns have spoken on the phone this offseason, league sources told The Athletic, and there is expected to be more substantive dialogue in the coming weeks when Towns returns from his travels.

According to several people familiar with the situation, there has not been an impasse between the two. Towns has not asked for a trade and the Wolves are not considering trading him. As contract extension talks kick off for Towns this summer, the communication only figures to increase.
