I Agree with Locke- Get Al Harrington

Foster? As in the 33-year-old, career 7.5 PP30, 10.5 RP30, 0.6 BPG, recently-injured, barely-positive +/- Jeff Foster? Lulz.

At least Gortat logs one or two blocks per 30 (although his +/- was team-worst last season; red flag to me).

Last season, Gortat outproduced Fesenko in rebounds at a significantly higher rate (and somewhat so with blocks), but if you think Fes is offensively limited, wait 'til you deal with 8 PP30 from MG :(.

At least Gortat brings in that all-important Polish demographic lol . . . .

Don't worry about >$8M per for Harrington; nobody will pay him that. But if he's not signed anywhere, I don't see how Utah can pay more than the MLE without a willing S&T. Not sure why NYK doesn't want him back, although his +/- isn't good, either.

He might be one of these guys who do better in the Jazz system.

I want Foster (tough SOB) over Gortat (slightly more polished ver of Fes) because of the salary commitment due to him (1yr/6.7M vs 4/28M)

I'd rather go to Foster's Freeze for a milkshake.

Speaking of bigs, what is Mikki Moore up to nowadays? If he's recovered from his injury, he might be a possibility at a vet minimum deal.

Harrington saying he would like to play alongside DWill is the same thing in my mind as saying he would come to Utah. Get on this. Now.

Al Harrington's twitter page...look at his response to a fan asking him if he'd enjoy playing with Dwill.

a7harrington @Mosesstone1980 DWill is Cold as Ice. Would be my pleasure to RUN with Him!

That's code for runaway from Utah together.

And what else is he suppose to say when looking for a contract. :)

I'd replace Harrington with AK. Ak starts with Harrington off the bench.

Agreed....and I really want to see AK as the feature player. Now that Boozer is gone we should let AK try and be more of a focus in our offense.
It's a contract year for AK, and I think he's going to show us what he can do when he is motivated.

Harrington would be a find back up.
