Al Horford: 'I'm very happy with the Atlanta Hawks'

Atlanta Hawks star Al Horford insists that he sees his future being with the franchise beyond next summer.

Atlanta Hawks star Al Horford has insisted that he is happy where he is as he looks ahead to becoming a free agent next summer.

Horford warned the media that he wouldn't be discussing his future until the end of the season.

"For me, I'm very happy in Atlanta. It's one of those things where I don't want any contract talks to be a distraction for my team and me," he told Sports Illustrated.

"I feel like my focus this year is for us to build and be better. Since we can't do anything right now, we'll wait until the season's over and then we can start talking about all that."

The Hawks won a franchise-record 60 games last season, going on to make the Eastern Conference Finals before losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
