Earlier today it was reported that Magic forward Al Harrington was thinking about calling it a career thanks to complications from knee surgery. However, the veteran took to Twitter tonight to make it known that he has no plans to retire.
“The report that I’m considering Retirement is completely False and has absolutely no Truth to the article that’s being circulated!,” Harrington tweeted (sic).
Harrington has missed the entire season to date thanks to a staph infection that developed in his knee following surgery. Last week, it was reported that the 32-year-old planned on returning to action before the trade deadline in February and hoped to play for five more years. The big man is making $6.687MM this year and has two half-guaranteed seasons remaining on his deal for roughly $14.7MM. For his career, Harrington has averaged 13.8 PPG with 5.7 RPG over 14 years in the league.
