Charles made it clear that Harrison’s return is not about money stating, “[Harrison] would play for free. He’s back in love with he game and just wants an opportunity to play.” “At the end of the day, he’s a 7 foot center with a nice jump shot and dominating post moves. He’s a great guy who deserves a shot and his first shot unfairly taken from him. He’s looking at the NBA Summer League, D-League, and overseas,” continued Charles.

Harrison said he is 16 credit hours from a college degree at Colorado, but can’t afford to go back to school to finish. He has had a preliminary conversation with Colorado’s men’s basketball program about a graduate assistant opportunity, but nothing is brewing. When asked how he’s making ends meet now, Harrison said: “I trade stocks. I invested in a few smaller companies that I’ve been able to liquidate out of. I’ve literally burned through about 95 percent of my savings. I applied for a job at Edward Jones. That didn’t work out.”

O’Brien strongly disagreed with Harrison’s characterization that he was abusive. “Let’s just say he had a lot bottled up inside of him before we ever crossed paths,” O’Brien said. “He was as good of an athlete as you were going to find at center, but he just could not get the job done. There was no way of beating around the bush. “I sat with him a lot. [Pacers president] Larry Bird sat with him a lot to see if there was anything to get him to utilize his talents. He just was not a very functional NBA player.”
