Al Horford is entering the final season of his current contract and will be an unrestricted free agent in 2016 when the cap increases.
Horford was recently asked what made him decide to wait until free agency to address his contract with the Atlanta Hawks.
"For me, I'm very happy in Atlanta," said Horford. "It's one of those things where I don't want any contract talks to be a distraction for my team and me. I feel like my focus this year is for us to build and be better. Since we can't do anything right now, we'll wait until the season's over and then we can start talking about all that."
