ESPN is reporting that the Nuggets reached an agreement in principle Tuesday night on a five-year, $34 million contract with Al Harrington, outbidding Dallas in the process.
Despite the poor early trend, it looks like the Western powers are slowly adding some nice pieces. Childress in Phoenix, Jefferson in Utah, Chandler in Dallas, and now Harrington in Denver.
Obviously, Harrington won't do much to replace Martin or Andersen's defense, rebounding, thuggishness, or tattoos. But when Martin and Anderson get healthy again, he will be a very interesting addition. A lineup with Lawson/Billups, Smith, Melo, Harrington, and Nene/Anderson would be very potent... and very volatile.
