I counter that with, we shouldn't be signing veterans to 4 year contracts when veterans of his skill level simply aren't necessary. Our team will be built off the current core - Peterson, Bosh, Villaneuva. It doesn't make much sense to go spend a large amount of our cap on someone who won't make much of a difference at this point in time, Harpring is a savvy veteran, and he will demand a good amount of money because he will have contending teams after him.
We aren't ready to take the step into contender status, and I think that is where we would be willing to make a signing like Harpring. If we were the 6th seed in the East, then signing someone like Harpring would make logical sense.
