The Boston Celtics are the favorites to trade for Al Horford if the Atlanta Hawks decide to make a trade before the deadline.
Horford is in the final season of a five-year, $60 million deal. Horford will turn 30 in June and wants to sign a five-year deal instead of a four-year one that he'd be forced to sign if he were to leave the team he ends up with at the end of this season.
Horford was asked about the trade rumors during All-Star weekend.
“For me, I ask for guidance but at the end of the day I understand the business of everything,” Horford said at the time. “I know how everything works. For me, I need to stay diligent, keep doing what I do and whatever happens, happens.”
