From the looks of it, Atlanta Hawks are on the verge of doing something that could harm their chances in the next season. They are looking to revamp their team and are planning to do so by letting go of their all star center Al Horford. Now, the readers will remember that the current team has been giving above average performances at almost all the games. They never got to make an appearance in the final, but they were strong enough to finish first in the Eastern Conference.

Al Horford doesn’t seem to be doing well in the Eastern Conference. The Dominican Republic star is looking to get out of Atlanta Hawks. It has been said that Horford doesn’t want to strike a deal with the Atlanta Hawks anymore. While it has been insinuated that Horford has set his sight higher and is looking for a meatier deal, no certain news has appeared on the circuit so far.

Boston Celtics seem to be boasting about buying more talent and they have mentioned Al Horford on occasion. But the Celtics do know that they should show restraint while shelling out money. After all, if the players aren’t a good fit in their team, they may not bring more victories to the team. They also know that they have a pretty good team on their hands and it will be harder now to find talent that can beat their own into the equation.

At any rate, we would like to know how this plays out. Buying Al Horford seems like a crazy move for the Celtics. Will they do it? What do you think?
