Al Harrington is reportedly about to fire his agent and being negotiations all over again. The Denver Post reports that the Nuggets are interested and could attempt some sort of sign-and-trade.
This sounds like another case of the rumor mill getting me all fired up about something (i.e. AI) for no good reason. I can't imagine the Nuggets working anything out to get Harrington, but even if we did, how would it work?
Harrington's a stud, but would he fit in with the Nuggets? Where would he play here? Does anyone know about his game?
You don't really need another front court player, unless it's a sign and trade with Kmart going the other way, which I can't imagine Atlanta wanting that contract. Also, Harrington is very similar to Carmelo. He's a bit taller and not as talented, but his game allows him to hold his own at the 4 spot. Defensively he's horrible in terms of intimidation (shot blocking).
his attitude makes his game a lot stronger than Kmart's, if Kmart was moved for Harrington, i think that would be a steal for Denver. Kmart needs to be moved he just will not fit in to The nuggets system, give him a team like ATL to start in fresh were he can be dominate and Harrington could have a chance to make a major playoff run with a very young and talented frontcourt alonside melo and Nene.
I don't think I want Kenyon gone anymore. And I don't think anyone else wants him right now. But if they did a sign and trade with Atlanta, that would work for everyone I think. ATL would get an enforcer who could maul those Eastern conference PF's, and the Nuggets would get a big man who could shoot from outside, which Karl really wants.
How does Harrington get his points? He makes a decent amount of three's...
I don't think any of this would happen, but it's interesting.
I think if Denver would get Harrington it would be very interesting. Would he back up the 4 and 3 spots or would he start at the 3 with Melo at the 2? I think he would be a nice addition to the team but i think it would be complicating unless K-Mart will be moved.
