I caught up with Al Horford Sunday for a story on his globe-trotting summer. The Hawks center was in London and will make stops in Spain and, most likely, South Africa promoting the game of basketball.
I did speak to him about the Hawks' busy offseason. Here is the part of the interview where I asked Horford about returning to play center after the team signed power forward Paul Millsap.
“I was hoping to play more in the power forward position," Horford said. "We couldn’t work things out with Zaza (Pachulia) and he had to leave. I understand that now I have to go play some center. I would like to play a little more power forward. I was talking to coach (Mike Budenholzer) and the way that the offense works, the 4 and the 5 are pretty much interchangeable. I feel like Paul and I will be able to complement each other.
