In a little blurb in the Rocky Mountain News, Harrington's agent says that he is interested in Boston among other teams. If Harrington is interested in Boston, that must mean that Danny has contacted him about possibly coming to Boston. I am not sure if he is what we need, though.
HARRINGTON INTERESTED: Free agent forward Al Harrington said the Nuggets have contacted Arn Tellem, who officially becomes his agent Aug. 16.
"Yeah, definitely," Harrington said of his interest in going to the Nuggets in a sign-and-trade. "When you look at Denver's situation, they want to make some noise."
Harrington last week fired his agent, Andy Miller, citing "personal reasons." In addition to the Nuggets, he said he is interested in Indiana, Boston, Golden State and Minnesota.
I do like Al Harrington's game. He's a versatile player who's got tons of basketball skills. He can be that big 3 we've long been hoping for, and in a small lineup, he can play PF and set up in the post.
But from all indications, he's almost guaranteed to be heading for Indiana. They just need to work out the right deal. He wants to go there, and they want him to be there, so its just a matter of time before something gets worked out.
I'm always willing to sign guys like Al H for the mid level exception and have them compete for playing time. I suppose if DA told Al that he wouldn't be so interested in Boston any more. I wonder how he came up with those teams to be interested arbitrarily, when he would probably play with any team that would show him the money.
