Al Horford parted ways with the Wasserman Media Group on Monday and hired Bill Duffy of BDA Sports to represent him as his agent according to Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal.
Horford is the latest player to leave the Wasserman group after the exit of longtime agent Arn Tellem who left to take an executive position with the Detroit Pistons. Tellem's absence has led several players, including Joe Johnson and LaMarcus Aldridge to hire new agents.
Duffy currently represents Klay Thompson, Danny Green, Andrew Wiggins and Jahlil Okafor. Horford is a big get for BDA Sports and figures to be one of the most sought-after free agents available next summer. The Hawks have maintained their desire to keep Horford and figure to be aggressive in retaining him.
