The Atlanta Hawks reportedly made a significant offer to Al Horford but it is unknown what the status of that offer is heading into Day 2 of free agency.

The Atlanta Hawks moved quickly on Day 1 of free agency agreeing to deals with center Dwight Howard and retaining swingman Kent Bazemore. There is still work left to do and while it may be a long shot, Atlanta apparently hasn't closed the book completely on retaining Al Horford.

According to a report by the AJC's Chris Vivlamore, the Hawks in fact did make a "significant offer" to Horford but it is unclear if that offer still stands after the Howard and Bazemore agreements.

Atlanta has reportedly been reluctant to offer a full five-year max offer which is what Horford is apparently seeking. At this point it is unclear if the offer they made to Horford was at a max level or lower. Horford has several teams chasing him including the Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards.
