Report: Kentucky guards Aaron, Andrew Harrison to enter NBA draft

Wednesday April 8th, 2015

Kentucky sophomore guards Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison will enter the NBA draft, Shams Charania of Real GM reports.

The twins were highly-touted recruits and led the Wildcats to the NCAA title game in 2014 and to a 38-1 record and appearance in the Final Four this season.

Aaron Harrison averaged 13.7 points as a freshman and 11.0 points as a sophomore. He made game-winning three-pointers in three straight NCAA tournament games in 2014.

Andrew Harrison also saw his production dip in his sophomore season. After averaging 10.9 points as a freshman, he averaged 9.3 points this season. Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix projects his range in the draft to be 35–40.

The twins are the first Kentucky players to declare for the draft. It is expected that up to seven Wildcats could declare, with Karl-Anthony Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein and Trey Lyles all likely to enter the draft.

Devin Booker and Dakari Johnson are also candidates to declare. Gary Parrish of CBS Sports reports Johnson is “genuinely torn” about whether to leave school early.
