Team Drama is at it again.
My colleague Tim Kawakami reported that Al Harrington officially asked to be traded. I have confirmed that Al did indeed ask to be traded today, according to a source close to Harrington. A team source confirmed that Al did meet with Mullin.
A source close to Al said the meeting included Al telling Chris Mullin that he can’t take any more of coach Don Nelson. Harrington has been unhappy since the end of the 2007 season, when he was relegated to supporting cast. He had said he came into this season willing to give it another try. But Harrington isn’t convinced, according to the source, that things will be different after he was benched late in the Lithuania preseason game. Nelson tried to put Al back into the game, but Al refused.
