Al Harrington on signing with Nuggets: ‘taking my Talents to the MILE HIGH’

The Denver Nuggets reached an agreement in principle Tuesday night on a five-year, $34 million contract with free-agent forward Al Harrington, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.


Appreciate the Love and Concern. But I’m taking my Talents to the MILE HIGH. Lol. Love Yall Lego DENVER!! Brett Meeny THX!


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This is a good look for the Denver Nuggets, who are enduring free agent angst with Carmelo Anthony.

‘Melo hits the open market next summer, July of 2011. However, the Nuggets – with today’s signing of Al Harrington – have begun the process of selling Anthony on staying long-term by inking an extension.

After all, Harrington is locked in for five years. He’s a versatile scorer, capable of producing in a starting role, if Kenyon Martin struggles with health issues, or coming off the bench as sixth-man.

Best of all, it shows the Nuggets want to win. It shows ownership – even in these tough economic times – will commit money and term to supporting pieces.

This is important with rumors swirling that Anthony is considering swapping George Karl and the Mile High City for  Amar’e Stoudemire and The Big Apple next summer, which coincidentally is Harrington’s old team.

Today is the first step. Denver will have to impress Anthony for the entire season –if they hope to keep him.
