If he passes physical, Harrington will sign with Wizards

Washington has bigs on its roster but nobody they consider a stretch four, and with Nene on the block and the slashing of John Wall into the paint, they need a big to space the floor.

So they went hard after Al Harrington when he became a free agent.

And if he passes his physical on Tuesday, they have got him reports J. Michael at

Passing a physical is not a given — Harrington played in only 10 games last season because a surgery that was to fix a torn meniscus in his left knee turned into a staph infection that kept him out all but 10 games last season.

Harrington has worked hard on his conditioning and says he has dropped 27 pounds. If all of that is true — and if he has returned to anywhere near the form of the guy who averaged 14.2 points a game in Denver two seasons ago — the Wizards will have a good deal for them at the league minimum.

    hopefully this pushes Sarafin and Veseley further down the depth chart.

      Seraphin is good. If you don’t like him please send him over to LA!

        He is good but he is neither consistant nor aggressive. He would rather take a fade away jumper or an off balance floater than bang and fight for decent position. Then again, that all just described Gasol too huh? Lol! No wonder you’d take him in LA

        That was weak, try again.

    Did he say he wanted to play for a contender?

    The wizards need to make some waves in dc, too many other options of not only sports but entertainment in general seeking everyone’s dollars.

    Bringing back the bullets name would create excitement in the market, and for sure get a bump in ticket sales.
