Mike Budenholzer Rumors

Those who know Horford better don’t seem to hold the relocation against him. Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer had nothing but praise. “The things that the fans don’t see is what happens in the locker room, and what happens at practices, and what happens on planes and meals and all those things,” Budenholzer said. “He’s just a good person. I think he’s good for young players. I think he has a lot of respect with veterans. On the court, I think his passing, I think even the casual fan sees what a good passer he is. But I think defensively sometimes the subtleties of playing pick-and-roll defense or guarding different guys — he does a lot of things that impact winning.”
