Per the Washington Post:
The desires of John Wall and Coach Randy Wittman to add a power forward who can stretch the floor from the perimeter may soon be met. According to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, veteran free agent big man Al Harrington will arrive in Washington on Tuesday for a physical and is “close” to signing a one-year deal for veterans minimum of $1.4 million with the Wizards.
Harrington struggled during his time with the Orlando Magic last season, only playing in ten games due to injury. However, prior to his injury riddled 2012-13 season, Harrington was an effective player for the Denver Nuggets. Harrington’s health is something the Wizards are willing to gamble on given the cheap risk.
Despite playing fifteen seasons in the NBA, Harrington is still just 33-years-old, though, he does have a history of nagging injuries which is cause for concern.
Adding Harrington would certainly be a blow to the young core of Wizard small forwards, then again, it’s not as if any of them have established themselves in that role which has been up for grabs for multiple seasons.
