The Washington Wizards officially signed forward Al Harrington today, after days of rumors that the signing was imminent. No terms of the contract were announced, but it is believed to be for the veteran minimum of about $1.4 million for one year. That would leave the Wizards just barely below the luxury tax threshold. Harrington is Washington’s 15th player under contract, the most allowed under NBA rules.

Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld:

“Al’s all-around game and reputation as a leader make him a solid fit with our team. He will give us additional depth and experience in the frontcourt, the ability to stretch defenses and another proven veteran in the locker room.”
