The Al Horford experiment lasted exactly one season in Philadelphia.

The 76ers agreed to trade Horford to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Danny Green, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday.

As part of the deal, Philadelphia will also be sending the 34th pick in Wednesday night’s NBA draft, a lightly protected 2025 first-round pick and the draft rights to Serbian guard Vasilije Micic to Oklahoma City.

The Thunder will be sending guard Terrance Ferguson to the Sixers along with Green.

Horford, 34, signed a four-year, $109 million contract with Philadelphia as a free agent last summer, as the Sixers hoped the combination of prying him away from their blood rivals, the Boston Celtics, as well as pairing him with Joel Embiid — whom he’d always been effective guarding as a member of the Celtics — would pay dividends. Instead, the fit between the two was clunky from the start and never improved, to the point where Horford was removed from the starting lineup for the first time in his career in favor of second-year guard Shake Milton.
