Would Al Harrington be a Good Fit in Chicago?


ne player who hasn’t been mentioned much is Golden State’s Al Harrington, once a peach in the Bulls’ eyes. The Bulls thought they had a deal with the Pacers for Harrington in 2004. Indiana supposedly wanted a lottery pick, so the Bulls paid $3 million — rare these days and a sign they do spend — for the Suns’ pick at No. 7. When the Bulls went back to the Pacers, Indiana apparently changed its mind and asked for the No. 3 pick, which the Bulls used for Ben Gordon…It’s been no secret in the Bay Area that Nelson isn’t enamored of Harrington and has positioned Harrington as strictly a three-point shooter, rarely giving him post-up opportunities. The Bulls envisioned Harrington posting up and shooting with his versatility, and he’s the guy I’d target. Click here for more from the Chicago Tribune.
