Al Harrington leaning toward signing with Wizards

Al Harrington could really help the team that snaps him up ó two seasons ago he averaged 14.2 points a game, was a big who could stretch the floor all the way out to the three point line.

That is he could help if heís healthy. Thatís the gamble.

And it may be the Wizards that take that risk, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

Sources told that the Wizards, who have one guaranteed roster spot open, are looking to add some frontcourt scoring punch and have aggressively pursued Harrington since he cleared waivers Aug. 4.

Harrington is recovering from an meniscus surgery that evolved into a staph infection last season ó and recovery is a little slower at age 33. He played just 10 games last season (which also was tied to the Magic wanting to play their youngsters). However, he says he has dropped 27 pounds and is ready to go.

This would work for Washington, which already has guys like Emeka Okafor and Jan Vesely who can play the four (next to Nene at the five), plus Chris Singleton can step into that role off the bench. If Harrington can play they can certainly use the minutes, but if not theyíll be fine.

Weíll see if itís Washington or if another team jumps in at the last minute.

Iíve heard that if you argue with an idiot, after a while it is hard to tell who the real idiot is.
