The 34-year-old envisions one day returning to the league as a member of the coaching staff with the Wizards, where he spent last season as player on Washington's roster. In 34 games for the Wizards, he averaged 6.6 points in 15 minutes per game. 

Harrington was drafted by the Pacers in the first round of the 1998 NBA Draft. He has since gone on to play for the Hawks, Warriors, Knicks, Nuggets and Magic before moving to Washington.
