NBA Draft Rumors: Harrison twins genuinely torn about returning to Kentucky in 2014


The future of both Andrew and Aaron Harrison at Kentucky doesn’t seem to have been made up yet but the time for an official decision is quickly approaching. With the deadline to declare for the draft approaching, we will likely hear word on what the Harrison twins are going to do in 2014 sooner rather than later.

According to Adam Himmelsbach of The Louisville Courier-Journal, the decision isn’t as easy as it’s been reported by some, as the twins re ‘genuinely torn’ about entering the NBA Draft and starting their pro careers or returning to Kentucky for their sophomore seasons thus shocking the entire world.

It’s no secret that Kentucky is known for its one-and-done players and the Harrison twins looked to be leaders of that pack. But they had so-so freshman seasons that hurt their draft stock, something that is a motivating factor to come back. There’s also the fact that they have unfinished business in March Madness and could make a tun at a title in 2014 should they return.

Let’s not skate over the fact that the late-round draft value they have could become lottery-worthy if they bounce back and show improvement in their sophomore seasons.

It’s not an easy decision and neither of the Harrison twins has yet made one on their basketball future, but we can likely expect one soon.

    Andrew & Aaron, I know how much you want to enter the NBA draft, but give this a thought, if you return to Kentucky for another year it will make your draft status much, much higher then it is now ! You will start out making more ,more money then you will in this years draft! You will have another GREAT year to play together as Brothers, before the NBA divide’s you on different teams ! Plus you will have another run at the NCAA Championship before you leave! UNFINISHED business ! I think that entering the draft this year will be way more stressful for you now, as you are always going to have those moments of doubt ,as you both are having now, It’s a MAJOR step Twin’s, I actually think if you stay here you will be relieved of all that stress you are under now ! Please stay, but if you decide not too, I will wish you all the luck in the world! You are a double part of our family now ,I always wanted TWIN’S , We care about you and your future’s , more than you know, when we lose a family member to the NBA, we hurt and we miss them DEEPLY ! I hope you listen to your heart’s and not your wallet, money is nice , but it is not everything! I got my fingers crossed ,hoping you will decide to return to us !!!
