According to Mercury News, the Warriors will look at Al Horford and Joakim Noah in free agency.
Noah will be the cheaper option, but both players would give the Warriors an upgrade at center. The report also adds that Hassan Whiteside could even be an option. The Warriors are obviously going to make Kevin Durant their No. 1 priority, and they will likely have to move on from Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli to have a shot at any of these big names.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

The Hawks will try to trade their two first-rounders to make re-signing Al Horford easier.

Interesting. The Hawks picked up the No. 12 pick in the Jeff Teague deal on Wednesday. The Hawks also traded their No. 19 pick in a basically salary dump, so this isn't a new trick for them. Horford might actually be on board with staying, and the Hawks making a trade on Thursday would be very revealing.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

The Magic, Lakers and Pistons will reportedly go after Al Horford as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Horford is going to command plenty of attention as a free agent this offseason, so there's sure to be plenty more names added to this list. The Pistons seem like a bit of a strange fit with Marcus Morris, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond already on the roster, and while the Lakers will be able to offer the prestige of a historic franchise, it's unclear if Horford is at all interested in going through a rebuild. The Magic also don't seem like a realistic option given where Horford is at in his career.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford said that he is not yet thinking about his upcoming free agency.

"I’m not thinking about that," Horford said. "We just had a tough loss. My main priority [Monday] is to meet with the team and the coaches one last time (for the season) and go from there and figure out how we can be a better group." Reading the tea leaves, Horford does not sound like someone who can't wait to depart from Atlanta. "I’ve set up here with my family. We all live here. We live here in the summer. We live here year-round. I’m very grateful for all the people here. They have taken me in from the very first day, even though I was a Gator. They loved me. I really love the city."

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, to go with four rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, one block and two turnovers in 39 minutes.

Horford was the only Hawk to consistently bring it for Atlanta through their second-round series, and he’s sure to command plenty of attention on the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Horford was a top-15 player during the 2015-16 season, and he should be able to establish himself as an early-round asset regardless of the jersey he puts on next season.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 24 points during a crushing Game 3 121-108 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists, two steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

The Hawks blew this one big time. They were up 94-85 with 11 minutes remaining, but they gave up seven 3-pointers after that. Their offense was fine for most of the game, but the three ball is killing them in this series. The Hawks actually had a franchise record of 16 treys on their end, but the Cavs have 46 in the last two. They will try to avoid a sweep on Sunday.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford made 4-of-13 from the field for 10 points during a 104-93 loss to the Cavs in Game 1 on Monday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 36 minutes.

It looked like the Hawks were going to pull off an amazing comeback after they erased an 18-point deficit. As for Horford, he was 2-of-10 from beyond three feet and is really struggling with his jumper. Perhaps his groin injury is limiting him, but his defense has been fine.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 15 points to help the Hawks advance in a Game 6 104-92 win in Boston on Thursday, adding four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

The blocks were the story with the Hawk putting up 12 of those to shut down the Celtics offense in the first three quarters. Horford was terrific on defense in this series, but he didn't bring it on the stat sheet. In the six games, he averaged 12.5 points, 8.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 2.7 blocks and 1.0 treys. His groin injury looks like it's behind him as he gets ready for a tougher matchup against the Cavs.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Mike Budenholzer said on Wednesday that Al Horford (groin) is not dealing with any health issues.

The injury has not forced Horford to miss any time, and he's certainly not looking to use it as an excuse for his lack of scoring as of late. While Horford has been struggling on the offensive end over the past two, he's still managed to produce meaningful stat lines with solid contributions to the rebounding (8.5), assists (4.5), steals (1.5) and shot blocking (1.0) categories. Perhaps he can get going on the offensive end during Thursday's Game 6.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford was quiet in Tuesday's 110-83 win over the Celtics, scoring six points on 2-of-11 shooting with eight boards, four assists, one block and two steals in 24 minutes.

He continues to say that his groin isn't an issue, but he hasn't scored in double digits since Game 2. The good news is that he's still getting it done in other areas of the box score, so hopefully he finds his rhythm on the offensive end in Game 6 on Thursday in Boston.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (groin) is experiencing no issues ahead of Game 5 on Tuesday, according to Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer.

Horford is listed as probable, but his status for Tuesday night was never in doubt. He hasn't been involved in the Hawks offense much in the series, but is still a solid DFS play at home on Tuesday.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (groin) is probable to play on Tuesday.

He's fine and the Hawks called him probable for Game 4. Horford hasn't been involved in the offense much, which should probably change. He'll be a solid contrarian play in DFS on Tuesday.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (groin) scored only five points in 38 minutes during Sunday's thrilling Game 4, shooting 2-of-8 with nine rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block.

Atlanta consistently out-scored the Celtics in the paint this season but that wasn't the case tonight, as the Celtics piled up 52 points in the paint vs. 40 for the Hawks. A huge run to begin the third quarter helped Atlanta build their lead to 16 points, but it quickly dwindled and they wound up losing after a lousy performance in overtime. They'll have one day to regroup before Tuesday's Game 5 rematch.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (groin) will start on Sunday vs. the Celtics as expected.

He was listed on the injury report as probable, so his status wasn't in any real doubt. Horford is averaging 16.3 points, 10.0 boards, 3.3 assists, 3.7 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.3 3-pointers in this series and is a must-start player in all formats.
Apr 24 - 4:39 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (groin) is probable for Sunday against the Celtics.

Maybe this groin injury is why the Hawks aren't going inside to him enough? Still, Horford will be out there in a huge game. Based on the flow of the game on Friday with a lot of forced shots on the perimeter, the big man should be more involved in the offense. Expect a productive game.
