The Washington Wizards have made a lot of nice moves this offseason. And they made another solid decision on Wednesday, as they agreed to a one-year deal with veteran forward Al Harrington.
Harrington, who is entering his 16th season in the association, provides front court depth for the Wizards. Currently, the Wizards already have Emeka Okafor and Nene in the fold, so Harrington will likely come off the bench in relief for both players. Harrington has a different style than both Okafor and Nene, as he has the ability to knock down open shots from a distant. For his career, Harrington is averaging 13.7 points and 5.7 rebounds, while shooting 35% from behind the three-point line.
Harrington played just ten games last season with Orlando Magic due to injuries, but he says he is “110% healthy” now.
The Wizards have been especially busy this offseason. They drafted rookie Otto Porter Jr. back in June, they signed John Wall to a long term extension a few weeks ago, and now they have added some veteran talent to their rotation. Not a bad summer for a team that is trying to make their first playoff appearance since 2008.
