Harrington’ s a fixture with the Nuggets now through the end of this season, he said. A relationship built over two seasons with the Nuggets is paying off for both. Harrington will best be known for his days with the Pacers, where he played seven seasons and was a huge part of the team’s run to the Eastern Conference finals in 2004.But his basketball story ended in China. Harrington spent 56 days this season with the Fujian Sturgeonsof the Chinese Basketball Association before leaving to come back to the United States.
“I’m very happy with what I was able to accomplish,” Harrington said. “I was able to change a lot of people’s lives in my family, including myself in a game that I eventually fell in love with and will always be in love with. And hopefully I can stay around the game until I die. It was a fun ride. It went by fast, too. It was like one minute I was 18, the next I was 25 then was 30 and now I’m 35. It was a fun run. Met a lot of great people.”

Eighteen years old became 25 became 30 became 35. Sixteen years in the NBA can be a blur, Al Harrington can attest to that. He lived it. On Wednesday, he recounted near two-decades worth of just sheer fun, allowing the words that put an end to things kick off the conversation. He sat courtside at the Toyota Center after helping out during a Nuggets practice, and finally said it. “I’m officially retired,” Harrington said. “I don’t know if there’s paperwork that I gotta fill out or anything. But my career is over.”

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the Houston Rockets are considering signing 16-year veteran forward Al Harrington, who was recently cut in China in order to allow him to pursue a NBA return. Harrington played 34 games for the Washington Wizards last season, averaging 6.6 points and 2.2 rebounds. With great experience and versatility, he could be an ideal fit on the Rockets’ frontline as they await Terrence Jones’ return from a nerve issue in his left leg.
