    Al Harrington?

    He has been known to be black hole at times, but is a good slasher, shooter, good post moves and always been known to be a great locker room guy.. he isnt going to be a Knicks next season and wants to play for a winner.. he has been injured all season long and still puts up 18 a game.. he is a free agent.. i was just wondering what the fans around the league think of him and how much is he worth..

    example:
    Spurs could use his offense to stretch the d more for Duncan as a 7th man off the bench for 25 mins per game.. 5 years 30 mill

    Nets if they dont aquire a big to go next to Lopez..

    I think Jamal Crawford is a good comparison (yes i know they play different positions). I think their roles and contracts should be similar, as they have similar impact on games. Al should go to a contender, as he is not getting any younger. His offensive skills can boost someones bench production (maybe LAL, Utah, Portland)

    I think he is the definition of a Full MLE player, I think he brings more versatility and more value as a 6th Man than as a starter. Hes a good scorer but on a good team he'd be a 4th option.

    At his age he might be looking to win now so I dont think he'd look at the Nets despite being his hometown team.

    he is instant O but if you have any young players you want to develope forget about it because when the ball touches his hands on O he is shooting one way or another.

    I would agree he belongs on a contender Boston, LAL, SA etc.

    Teams with a serious need for a scorer who can get his own shot, or scoring in general, will be interested. Several teams have cleared room for 2010 and quite a few are going to miss out on big free agents, so these B/C tier players will land decent contracts somewhere. He just turned 30 so he should have 3-5 productive years left.

    AL woud be a great Laker... Phil Jackson wouldnt put up with his foolishness... He'd be forced to play team ball on a great team..

    When the season starts and the blatant homerism subsides, people will realize the 2 biggest flaws on our team. MAYBE??

    If he goes to a team with discipline and a winning attitude, I think he can be a dangerous 6th man...A team like Phoenix would be good for him...or maybe the Spurs if Manu leaves.

    Only problem is, it's impossible for him to play for a winner, because any team he plays for won't win

    He would be a very good 6th man... their job is to come off the bench and provide a scoring punch and AH can certainly do that. I don't think he should be starting.

    I agree that Harrington is definitely worth the Full MDE(5.65 per year) & as a net fan, I'd love to see him with the nets.

    He'd be a great addition as either as the backup PF or SF. Our Current SF's, CDR4 & T.Williams, can both learn alot playing with Harrington.

    I do believe that the nets WILL make a splash this offseason with a big FA signing.

    - Getting the 1st overall pick & drafting John wall

    - Trading Devin Harris to the Sixers for AI23.

    - Signing a big-name Free agent Power Forward( Bosh-Max Contract or Boozer, 5yr 70mil).

    Lineup w/Bosh

    C) Lopez/ Boone(re-up)
    PF) Bosh/Yi/Humphries/N.Jawai(G-Tech)
    SF) T.Williams/Al Harrington
    SG) AI23/ C.Lee/CDR4
    PG) Jon Wall/ K.Dooling/Scottie Reynolds(Villanova).
