NBA free agency 2013: Al Harrington is expected to sign with Wizards, according to reports

Al Harrington - Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Reports indicate that the former Magic big man will move to the nation's capital in free agency.

Former Orlando Magic big man Al Harrington is "leaning toward" joining the Washington Wizards in free agency, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.com. Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD adds that Harrington worked out for Washington on Saturday, and that he will likely sign a contract with the team pending a physical.

Dan Fegan, Harrington's agent, represents Wizards players John Wall, Martell Webster, and Nenê. Wall signed a five-year, max-value extension with Washington on August 1st.

On August 2nd, the Magic placed Harrington on waivers, a cost-saving measure--only half of his salary for the 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons is guaranteed--which also frees playing time for Orlando's younger big men.

Harrington joined the Magic via the Dwight Howard trade in August 2012. He missed training camp and the first 56 games of the 2012/13 regular season as he rehabilitated from a staph infection in his right knee. The New Jersey native made just 10 appearances for Orlando before coach Jacque Vaughn benched him for the balance of the season. He averaged 5.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, and one assist per game in pinstripes.

Harrington came to the Magic fresh off a campaign in which he finished fourth in the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year balloting. He also owns the distinction, as Mike From Illinois noted, of being the Magic's all-time leading scorer among players who appeared in 10 games or fewer with the team.
