Al Horford, Hawks Have Until 11:59 To Agree On Extension

If the Atlanta Hawks wish to secure their long-term future with All-Star center Al Horford, they must agree to a contract extension with him by 11:59 this evening. ESPN’s Marc Stein reports the two sides are “still talking” and quotes a source as saying the chances of the two sides reaching an agreement are “50-50.” If that figure seems bleak, consider that Horford is the most likely member of the 2007 Draft class to get an extension.

If the two sides do not reach an accord, Horford will become a restricted free agent next summer.
