Al Horford

I've been seeing all these threads about how we should get Josh Smith, no, but let's try to get someone else from the Hawks, Al Horford.

                                                            From the SBN Scouting Report

Assets
  • A strong, long, hard-working power player. Fearless in the paint and team-first. Takes smart, high-percentage shots and has an emerging offensive repertoire.
Flaws
  • Despite his long limbs he's slightly undersized for an NBA pivot. His defense is good but he could be even more of a stopper. Could pass the ball a little more

With the loss of Amare Stoudemire, a hole is left at the PF position, Horford would be the perfect man in my opinion. He has a high BB IQ, a good defender, and a guy other teams are afraid of. 

I know what you are thinking, how do we get him to come here? Why would he leave the Hawks

He would leave the Hawks because they force him to play Center, however, he doesn't like playing Center as he's a natural PF. He is also being lowballed by management, who don't want to pay Jamal Crawford or Al Horford, but they pay Joe Johnson $130 mill. If you look at our options for PF right now you will see names like David West, among others, but IMO Al Horford would be the best option, better than Josh Smith too. What do you guys think?
