Aside from Kevin Durant, Al Horford probably is the most coveted NBA free agent on the market right now, assuming LeBron James stays with the Cleveland Cavaliers for at least one more season.
People believed the Atlanta Hawks agreeing to a four-year, $70 million contract with swingman Kent Bazemore on Friday would prevent them from re-signing Horford.
But that might not be the case.
One way the Hawks could clear enough salary cap space to bring back Horford is by trading All-Star forward Paul Millsap.
The Boston Celtics are interested in signing Horford as well, and they reportedly made a “strong presentation” to him during a meeting Friday.
The Celtics will meet with Durant on Saturday.
