Al Horford admits he was on edge throughout the offseason, but he ultimately understood the plan of the Atlanta Hawks' front office.

"I’m not going to lie to you," Horford said. "I questioned certain things, like ‘What is going on here?’ I was like ‘We need to get Kyle back. We need to get Jeff back. What’s going on?’ I was definitely on edge about all the things. Once I realized how everything was going, I was like ‘They have a vision. They know that they are doing. I have to trust them.’ I have to make sure that I get better and just get ready."

The Hawks re-signed Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver in the offseason while bringing Paul Millsap Elton Brand and Gustavo Ayon, among others.

"More than anything, I have to trust in (General manager) Danny (Ferry) and his vision and where he is going," Horford said.
