Atlanta Hawks: Catching up (again) with Al Horford

Caught up with Al Horford again, this time at Oglethorpe University during his summer camp for kids. The scene was about as loud and hectic as you might think. It’s always good for me to be reminded of why I don’t have (or want) any kids.

“The parents love it,” Horford said. “The kids do all this running around, and they are worn out when the parents come pick them up. They go right to sleep.”

The reports are that Al didn’t just lend his name to the camp like some athletes are known to do, but was hands-on with the kids. His father, Tito, helped out, too, running the kids through some drills. Bibby was there on Thursday.

Al held a camp in Michigan last summer and has two scheduled in the Dominican Republic next month, but this was his first local camp.

“This is my third year here so I figured I should do something here in Atlanta, [especially] since I live here, too,” Al said.

Before succumbing to the apparently A/C-less gym and those rambunctious rugrats, I managed to talk some business with Al. He offered insights on J.J.’s re-signing (good), Atlanta’s search for a center (important), a potential contract extension (no hurry) and the Heat loading up in Atlanta’s division (challenging).

Al said he’s happy the team re-signed Joe. He’s on board with ASG and Rick Sund’s philosophy that the Hawks still have the potential to get better so they had to keep pushing forward.

“I agree,” he said. “Everything is going well. Guys are still getting better. I think that is important to keep the team together. Like [Sund] said, we definitely don’t want to take a step back. It’s tough to build in this league.”

Atlanta is looking to add a center. I think that will happen through free agency rather than a trade. There are no indications the Hawks are actively seeking to trade any of their core guys but, like any team, they would listen to any offers that come their way.

They’d have to be very good offers, though. The Hawks still think this group can get better, and their focus is adding pieces to it, not “addition by subtraction,” Sund said. In other words, he’s not going to break up the core for a so-so trade.

Sund said the focus would getting bigs for the last three roster spots. That’s good news to Al, who thinks the Hawks definitely need to acquire a bona fide center.

“We need to get another big guy, another center, that’s able to help myself and Josh out,” he said. “We need to have someone to come in and have an impact. I think that is the position we need if we want to be any type of contender in the East.”

Al said he doesn’t necessarily mean getting a center to supplant him as the starter so he can move to power forward. Rather, it could be a scenario where the new center plays a lot of minutes and L.D. can mix and match from among the new guy, Al, Josh, Zaza and any other big guys Sund adds (a Jason Collins return is a possibility if he gets in better shape).

“I don’t have a problem splitting time [at center],” Al said. “I played a little four last year with Zaza in the game at the same time and I thought that was good. I know I am going to still play the five.”

He said he’s fine with that (it seems odd that an All-Star has to say that). He said he knows some fans and media seem to be more concerned about his position than him. But the way he sees it the Hawks have to play to their strengths, which includes a lineup with him at center.

“I think we create a lot of problems when have an athletic lineup with Josh at the four, me at the five and Marvin at the three,” Al said. “I think we create serious problems for people. I think that is one of our strengths as a team is we are so versatile.”

L.D. has talked about making better use of those advantages in the new offense and defense. Al said he hasn’t had that discussion with L.D. yet: “I am really interested to see what he is going to do as far as that.”

It’s also going to be interesting to see what the Hawks do as far as Al’s contract extension. The Hawks can offer him one that begins in 2011-12 and is worth up to five years and $82 million. The deadline for a deal is Oct. 31.

Al had said he knew the Hawks would take care of J.J. first. Now that they did, would he like to talk to them about an extension?

“We’ll see,” he said. “If the time is right. It is something that I will have to talk to my agent about. I know that the priority for the team was to re-sign Joe. We will see what happens the rest of the summer as far as the free agents if they are trying to get anybody else.”

The CBA complicates things for both Al and the Hawks. Atlanta will get the chance to retain Al’s rights as a restricted free agent next summer, but then what will free agency look like in the new labor deal? If Al signs an extension now it takes away some uncertainty but he can’t know now if he would be better off as a free agent.

“I really can’t get too caught up in that,” he said. “I really just have to go out and play. If something happens and I get an extension, great. If it doesn’t, I just have to keep playing and keep getting better.”

As for Miami, everyone seems to be predicting they will become an instant juggernaut due to the SuperFriends. They still have a lot of roster spots to fill but at this point is anyone wiling to doubt Pat Riley? Dude re-signs Wade, adds the other two stars and then carves out enough cap space to sign Mike Miller by sending away former No. 2 pick Michael Beasley for peanuts–a draft mistake that hardly anyone cares about anymore.

Assuming the Heat keeps building the roster with useful players, the Hawks could find themselves the third-best team in their division.

“This division is probably the toughest one,” Al said.

I think Gladyr, Sy, Jordan are all being looked at by management as possible replacements for Jamal Crawford, who is a FA next year, and Mo’ Evans. I think it is impossible for ASG to re-sign Jamal and Horford, and they have come to the proper conclusion that keeping Horford is the best solution. Al should jump on his 5 yr. 83m deal – has too by Oct. 31st if offered – if not, have you ever heard of a knee injury? Come on, don’t play the fans or yourself by holding out for another few mil. His agent is Arn Tellum – same as JJ – so look for ATL to get rooked.

For bigs – need guys better than Joe Smith, Collins and RandMo. Z may take the minimum. Shaq and Miller would be quality. Mbenga is a gamble, but may be worth it. RandMo – may be something someday, we’ll see. Ben Wallace played tough last year also. Spend the draft day 3mil like you said you would! Upgrade this team – we’re close….

Since our power went out last night, I’m a little late to this blog party.

But, I’ve read people ripping on Jason Collins. I think that guy is a good player. He showed himself well, during the few opportunities he was allowed to play last season. He can hit the mid-range jumper and he is not afraid to mix it up down low. Plus, if the refs will get off his back, he can bang with Dwight Howard. He did a solid job on Howard during the playoffs last year. The officials just refused to give him a call. I still say game 2 of that series goes to the Hawks, had the refs not screwed Collins. Howard would have had foul trouble, had to sit, and things could have been different.

Anyways, while I agree Collins should catch sh#t for not staying on top of his weight, I think some of you are underestimating him as a player. I think he can contribute. He has skills to offer–jump shot, willingness to fight down low. I hope he drops the lbs and is brought back by the Hawks.

Also, if you have not read the book “07 Seconds or Less, by Jack McCullum, you should. He follows the Suns through the ‘06-’07 season. In the book, the Suns see Jason Collins as a tough guy, who gives “cheap shots”. I think we all agree the Hawks need some tough guys. Collins could fill that role.

They have to do that to keep Horford’s image up. The rest of the players like Smoove, JJ, Crawford have enough talent to command attention. Horford is average is most categories, less than average in some, and above average in none.

As Hawks summer camp ensues this weekend, I’m getting anxious to see the young birds fly next week. See who wants to win a job…see the new coach’s system….see if Teague is ready to step up…see if RandMo can grow a set. I’m especially interested in this Sy kid. I though he was a forward, but they’re playing him at point???!!! The footage on him is he is long, lean, and slashes to finish at the rim. He’s already an upgrade over Mario since he can shoot a 3.

Big men. K Brown might be worth a shot here. If he has developed an attitude adjustment, a return “home” might just be what the doctor orders. Often times, it takes big men longer to get with the NBA program. Brown was a victim of too much success too young. He’s no longer “too young”. I’d rather take a chance there, than waste money on Father Time…er. Shaq.

Wow you guys act like Chills is the 2nd coming of Scottie Pippen.

Anyone that doesn’t think this team needs upgrading is delusional.

Remember this the same teams thats quit 2 year in a row in the playoffs, and the teams they lost to didn’t even get to the NBA finals.

JJ needs help. The Eastern Conference is better, and to come back with the same team would be insanity.

The Hawks needs a leader that’s extemely competative, and won’t concede to teams that are better on paper.

We have attractive pecies that would work well in trades (Josh Smith, Jamal Crawfords contract, Bibby’s contract, Chills exception, & Mo Evans Contract).

Ken Strickland has mention Okurford more than once and has outline how it’s possible. This will give the Hawks some of the elements it’s been missing the last 2 season, defensive toughness and rebounding.

Another player I thinks can be had is Gilbert Arenas. I would love to see that back court with Josh or Horford on the front line Okurford.

We can not come back with same team, and expect better results.

The NBA game is all about matchups. JJ guards Lebron, Al on Bosh; Marvin/Evans/Childress?/Barnes? on Wade (give him fits with length-has that occasionally worked?) with Smoove helping out lurking to clean up the mess when they drive and Crawford/Teague/Crawford/Bibby occasionally doubling from the top to dig steals out.

I like the idea of taking away Barnes to weaken Orlando and toughen us up. Hopefully Reddick will go join the Dukies. Orlando has some aging stars(Carter, Lewis) but still is tough. And I still think the Hawks will matchup to Boston well.

The real X-factors will be the play of Teague and the new Crawford. Still liking the Youtube of Jordan Crawford slamming over Lebron last summer-kid has no fear! Can you imagine a rotation that goes legitimately 10-deep consistently? and moves the ball! And runs plays? And changes up the defense?

I think Shaq will join the Super Friends or take the money in NJ. I’d like to see what he’d do for the Hawks though.

BTW, while they’re at it, maybe the Heat should get the Lopez twins(or the Collins twins!) for their roster-Wonder twin powers-activate! The Heat better get a few shooters to spot up other than Miller, and some grunt rebounders!

Rick is probably working hard behind the scenes. But if he wants specific players ( or a specific player ), he’s going to have to overpay for them a bit. It seems as if everyone is getting overpaid in this free agent market. You don’t significantly overpay for them ( see Tyrus Thomas @ 8 mill a year ). But you may have to use the full MLE on somebody to get them.

I will say this about Matt Barnes. His Defensive PER at the SF position is 13.3 with an eFG% given up of 44.6% . . which is damn near outstanding.

That has to be near the top of the league at SF.

Just a quick scan of names of SF’s and their Defensive PER at SF

Artest: 12.9 ( 46.7% Defensive eFG% )

Lebron: 15.6 ( 50.3% )
Pierce: 15.7 ( 48.9% )
Marvin: 15.7 ( 51.7% )
G. Wallace: 15.9 ( 51.7%)
Iggy: 15.9 ( 49.8% )

Prince: 16.8 ( 54.4% )

So as a defensive specialists, Barnes does rank right up there with the best.
