Short on big men, the Timberwolves are taking a chance on former Indiana Pacers center David Harrison.

As first reported by the Rocky Mountain News, Harrison will sign a one-year contract with the Wolves when they visit Denver on Friday for an exhibition game against the Nuggets.

Harrison, a former University of Colorado star, averaged 5.0 points and 2.9 rebounds in four seasons with the Pacers, who elected not to sign him after last season.

He also served a five-game suspension last season for violating the NBA's drug policy.

Harrison, who weighs 280 pounds, was taken by Indiana in the first round of the 2004 NBA draft with the 29th selection.

The Wolves are short on depth at center, with Calvin Booth (back) and Jason Collins (elbow) out with injuries.

I'm hoping the guy can bring some D. I don't think he is much more than a non-ambicious scrub, but he is a heavy load at 280. I hope he isn't too much trouble. I mean I hope he stays sober if he plays.

This is the only video I could find of him on youtube so I'm kind of scared.

He's in danger of falling out of the league if he doesn't step up, like, right now
