After three seasons in Houston, Harrington was traded on August 27th, 1999 by the Rockets along with Antoine Carr, Brent Price, Michael Dickerson and a future first-round draft choice to the Vancouver Grizzlies as part of a three-way deal in which the Rockets received the draft rights to Steve Francis, Tony Massenburg from the Grizzlies, and Don MacLean and future first-round draft choice from the Orlando Magic, and the Magic received Michael Smith, Rodrick Rhodes, Lee Mayberry and Makhtar Ndiaye from the Grizzlies.

Harrington provided scoring punch off the bench for the Knicks but he lost playing time due to a glut at power forward. in 2004 he was involved in a trade that sent him, Dikembe Mutombo, Frank Williams, and Cezary Trybanski to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Jamal Crawford and Jerome Williams. Currently, he plays power forward and center for the Chicago Bulls, wearing number 24.
