Al Harrington said he is retired from the NBA following a 16-year career and has started to assist the Denver Nuggets' coaching staff.
"I'm officially retired," Harrington said. "I don't know if there's paperwork that I gotta fill out or anything. But my career is over.
"I'm very happy with what I was able to accomplish. I was able to change a lot of people's lives in my family, including myself in a game that I eventually fell in love with and will always be in love with. And hopefully I can stay around the game until I die. It was a fun ride. It went by fast, too. It was like one minute I was 18, the next I was 25 then was 30 and now I'm 35. It was a fun run. Met a lot of great people."
Harrington was best known for his days playing with the Indiana Pacers and spent two seasons with the Nuggets. He played in China this season.
