The Atlanta Hawks season has come to a conclusion, and we are officially in offseason mode. The team had their exit interviews on Monday, where it would be the last time we hear from the players for a while. We have the highlights for you here, where you might get the answers you want to some questions you might have.
Take what you will from these tweets you're about to see. Al Horford's contract is up, and he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He's had a great tenure here in Atlanta, and right now his future is up in the air.
Here's what Horford had to say Monday:
"I feel good here ... Atlanta has welcomed me from the first day." - @Al_Horford— Atlanta Hawks (@ATLHawks) May 9, 2016
Horford: "I really love this group of guys. Coach is great. I really like where this organization is headed."— KL Chouinard (@KLChouinard) May 9, 2016
Make this what you will, but we're a couple of months away from free agency.
Horford also said that he will work on his post game, per Chris Vivlamore of the AJC, "That is a point of emphasis that I will try to be better in the post and be able to put the ball down a little more."
Schröder mentioned that he would like to be the starting point guard, but added that when it happens, it will happen. There was no urgency or ultimatum set. He also told reporters that he would be joining the German national team this summer.
Jeff Teague told reporters that he planned to spend time in Indiana during the offseason to heal himself, and had a little bit more than just wear and tear on his knees and ankles.
Teague was also reassuring in his self-assessment:
Teague also said he thought surgery wouldn't be necessary.— KL Chouinard (@KLChouinard) May 9, 2016
