IN MY OPINION
Bobcats' Harrington at risk?
Knee injury might make him odd man out if new player signs
As the Charlotte Bobcats continue to window-shop for another big man, you have to wonder who they'd cut to open a roster spot.
My guess, if it comes to that: Othella Harrington.
If he were healthy, Harrington would be that extra big man coach Sam Vincent needs. But Harrington's left knee hasn't fully healed from last season, complicating the situation entering training camp.
"He really is struggling with some knee and body issues,'' Vincent said. "I anticipate that his body has just gotten to the point where he just can't physically do it anymore. But I'm reserving that (judgment) until I have a chance to see him and spend time with him, because he may come back in and surprise us all.''
Harrington has traditionally been durable -- he appeared in 70 or more games in five of his last seven NBA seasons. But he now has 11 pro seasons on that body and might not have much left.
Cutting Harrington would be expensive -- he makes nearly $2.4 million this season -- but if he agreed to retire for health reasons, the Bobcats might recoup much of that cost in disability insurance.
Vincent has mentioned free agents Michael Ruffin or Marc Jackson as possibilities, and the team also worked out Vitaly Potapenko recently. Vincent uses the word "rugged'' to describe what he needs, and all three of those guys know how to throw their bodies around the lane.
