Atlanta Hawks Rumors
“I think Boston — Al Horford is a legitimate possibility for the Celtics,” Mannix said on CSNNE. “I think that is the guy, one of the guys across the league that Danny Ainge is the most excited about. He is a 4-man that would fit right into what Boston is trying to do. It will cost a lot of money to re-sign him in the offseason, but I think Boston’s willing to pay it because they haven’t paid a lot of money for players in recent years.”
Andrew: Any truth to this?: Magic and Hawks have had significant trade talks regarding Al Horford. – Steve Kyler: Magic are one of the teams interested, not sure I would call anything “significant” at this point.
Sources with knowledge of the team’s thinking say that Hawks management and ownership have conceded internally that unless Atlanta can recapture the magic of last season’s run — when it went 60-22 and claimed the East’s top seed — this season’s team is a fringe contender.
