NBA Draft Rumors: Aaron Harrison, Andrew Harrison open to returning to Kentucky

There is still hope in Kentucky that the Harrison twins, Aaron and Andrew, will be returning for their sophomore seasons with the Wildcats. It’s been assumed since they arrived at the school that they’d embody the one-and-done route but Gary Parrish from CBSSports reports that such a thing is far from a done deal.

Per CBSSports.com:

Sources have told CBSSports.com that both are leaning toward entering the NBA Draft but that it’s nowhere close to a done deal, and I really do think their decisions are the most important to Kentucky’s future because, assuming Johnson, Poythress and Marcus Lee return, the Wildcats will again be loaded in the frontcourt thanks to that trio and the enrollment of five-star bigs Trey Lyles and Karl Towns.

While it appears they’ve never been close minded to the ida of returning in 2014-15 to Kentucky, Parrish’s report seems to clash with that of Chad Ford who noted the twins have been talking about declaring since they arrived last year.

It’s not as though their draft stock is particularly high and returning for another season could result in the duo going back-to-back atop the 2015 draft class. Still, the idea of playing in the NBA is hard to ignore and the Harrison twins may have enough hype around them to pull of declaring this year instead of waiting.
