Coach Bud's Statement On Al Horford
ATLANTA -- From President of Basketball Operations/Head Coach Mike Budenholzer:
“On behalf of the Hawks organization, I would like to thank Al Horford for his many contributions on the court and in the community. He was an integral part of one of the most successful runs in franchise history, including nine straight playoff appearances after his arrival. The character he displayed on the court, in the locker room, and in the community gave our entire organization and city a leader that embodied unselfishness and professionalism.
We respect Al's decision and are grateful for his nine years with our organization and community.”
