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.
Hawks made very significant offer to Al Horford. Whether it still stands because of their new cap situation unknown. He still could return.— Chris Vivlamore (@CVivlamoreAJC) July 2, 2016
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.
