David Harrison chose Minnesota over offers from both Chicago and Dallas because he was impressed with Kevin McHale, the St. Paul Star-Tribune is reporting.
"McHale's a great man," Harrison said. "From our conversations, I can tell he cares a lot about the game and his players. He just gave me a general sense of well-being. I have to prove to the owners, the fans, my teammates that I am someone who can be depended upon to play both ends of the court and that I'll be ready for 82 games."
The Wolves signed the 7-foot former Pacer to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract.
In addition to interest from Minnesota, Chicago, and Dallas, it is believed that Harrison received offers from Europe.
So David Harrison signed with Minnesota because he was impressed with McHale, and by that, he must mean that he likes his GM skills, right? He must really be smoking something.
