Latest On Al Horford, Hawks

The Hawks have become more optimistic that they can re-sign Al Horford while the Celtics and Wizards fall back, , Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports. Boston and Washington were viewed as front-runners earlier today, but that appears to have changed. Wojnarowski then went a bit further and tweeted, Boston and Washington have rapidly lost hope of Horford leaving Atlanta. The Hawks are preparing a full max offer to keep Horford, who is being heavily recruited by Kent Bazemore, Michael Scotto of The Associated Press tweets.

The Hawks committed more than $140MM to Bazemore and Dwight Howard on Friday, and it will take a max offer to land Horford. Horford appeared in all 82 regular season games for Atlanta this past season, averaging 15.2 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 32.1 minutes per night. His shooting line was .505/.344/.798.

What disrespect? Guys choose other places to sign because of what other teams can afford them. The Wizards don’t really offer much that other teams can’t…they can’t offer the no income tax thing, they can’t offer increased marketing opportunities (that teams like the Knicks, Lakers, Clippers, etc. can), they can’t offer the most money (outside of offers to their own guys), they can’t brag about their franchise’s championship history, and are also not the best team in the East. Their entire pitch would basically be about playing with Wall and Beal.

The Mavs can offer most of the above and they are still left picking up crumbs every offseason
