In news that probably doesn’t surprise anyone, the Hawks have picked up the 2010-11 option on Al Horford. Big Al (who’s now on Twitter!) has been an anchor down low for the Hawks for the past two seasons, and hopefully will be for years to come.

Horford and company fell to the Detroit Pistons last night, 100-91, for the team’s first loss of the preseason. Marvin Williams was the offensive star for the Hawks, leading the team with 19 points, while Othello Hunter added 14 and 7 off the pine.

They’ll be back at it tonight as they host the Charlotte Bobcats at Philips Arena at 7:00 ET.
