Harrington hint really just a tease

By Jeff Caplan

Unrestricted free agent Al Harrington sent out a tweet Tuesday night aimed at Dallas Mavericks fans: "Dallas what's popping. Building a nice team over there!"

A few hours later, ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported that Harrington had agreed to a five-year, $34 million deal with the Denver Nuggets.

The Nuggets had to outbid the Mavs to acquire the power forward, who averaged more than 17 points last season for the New York Knicks.

And so as the dust settled on Tuesday's wheeling and dealing, the Mavs wound up with more 7-foot French centers (two) than true power forwards (one) -- Dirk Nowitzki.
