The Celtics and Wizards have emerged as the frontrunners to sign unrestricted free agent Al Horford and that a final decision is expected Saturday night writes Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
We’ll see what the Hawks sources have to say about that but all signs have pointed to Horford leaving and if this is totally true then the Thunder are out of the running, too. Horford landing there to play for old coach Billy Donovan would have been fun. Stay tuned.
Detroit was the mystery team that made Al Horford's short list of visits, sources say, but he looks lasered in now on Celtics/Wizards/Hawks

Hawks made very significant offer to Al Horford. Whether it still stands because of their new cap situation unknown. He still could return.

Sources: Talks ongoing between Horford, Hawks' camps today. Late ATL push. Horford's had 5-year offer all along there; engaging on salary.
