Report: Harrington to fire agent; trade in jeopardy?

Atlanta Hawks forward Al Harrington, rumored for weeks to be headed back to Indiana as a part of a sign-and-trade deal with the Pacers, plans to fire his agent, according to a newspaper report.


Harrington took steps Tuesday to sever ties with agent Andy Miller, a move that could have serious ramifications for his move out of Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on its Web site.


According to league rules, there must be a 15-day window between the time a player officially fires his agent and the time he can hire new representation. Harrington is expected to hire Arn Tellem as his new agent, the Journal-Constitution reported, citing persons familiar with the situation.


By switching agents, Harrington may have opened the door for other teams to re-enter trade talks with Atlanta. There were initially between five and ten organizations interested in a potential sign-and-trade deal with the Hawks before Indiana emerged as the front-runner.


It was believed that, once the Pacers and Hawks finalized their deal, Atlanta would have signed Harrington to a six-year contract worth nearly $57 million and sent him to Indiana.


The Golden State Warriors, the other prime contender along with Indiana to acquire Harrington, pulled out of the Harrington Sweepstakes late last week, conceding that the versatile forward was heading back to the Pacers.


The 6-foot-9 Harrington was selected by Indiana as the No. 25 overall pick in 1998. He averaged 18.6 points per game and 6.9 rebounds last season, his second season in Atlanta after having played six years in Indiana. For his career, Harrington, 26, has averaged 12.4 points per game and 5.8 rebounds.

GS might get another castoff and have no success with him, just like in the past :mrgreen:

I don't think it matters. He has already said that he's willing to go back to Indy. Firing his agent shouldn't change that.










Unless we have made a much better offer... and I hope that's not the case.

Tellem is the favorite to be his new agent... that's who got Dun his major deal! He must be good agent! If Harrington is coming to GS, get ready for a huge contract!

Mullin was to sign Harrington, he'd have to come up with a deal to move either dun or Pietrus because the team would be overloaded at yet another position. One more big contract and the Warriors would be well over the salarycap for quite some years!

Pietrus is about to expire... and, word is, Golden State's gonna let him walk.

Dunleavy is probably being thrown at every GM in the league... and probably being recieved as warmly as a Berkley pothead in the Monterey Country Club...

Wouldn't be good to see another close to 10million a year contract unless it was a real good player that'd be around for many years

Wherever Harrington goes, he'll be grossly overpaid.

Well, the new agent Harrington's reported to hire has an excellent relationship with Chris Mullin. And, really, that was the reason Harrington chose Indy; because they offered him more money (that and Atlanta could keep take major cash off their books).
