Report: Magic, Pistons, Lakers plan to pursue Al Horford

It’s an interesting trio of teams for Horford to consider. The Lakers are prestigious, but probably the furthest from contention. The Pistons made the playoffs last season and are generally considered to be on the way up. The Magic are as well, though not as far along.
The 30-year-old can play power forward and center, and his versatility and skillset will make him an attractive option for more than just these three teams. The Magic have been linked as recently as last month, and you can bet the Hawks would like to keep him if they can.
