Why did Denver even sign Harrington to that contract if they are now so desperate to get rid of him?
Simple. If they're rebuilding, they'll want to free up cap space also. Why would they want a veteran with 4 years (7 mil each year) on their roster if they're going young. Same goes with Harris, that's why Nuggets don't want him, as they have Ty Lawson already, who's on a much smaller contract.
