While Horford's impending free agency doesn't have the same intrigue and glamor of Kevin Durant‘s, he's still one of the very best players available on the market. His consistency as one of the NBA's best centers as well as his leadership make him an attractive player for anybody who needs a big man.

Last season, Horford averaged 15.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game while leading the Hawks to the second round of the playoffs. For the second straight year, they were eliminated by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
