The question of whether or not the Harrison Twins, Andrew and Aaron, will be entering the 2014 NBA Draft continues to rage on and we don’t seem to be any closer to a decision with just one week until the deadline for underclassmen to declare.
With plenty of backcourt talent in this year’s draft, one scout for an Eastern Conference team told Cincinnati.com that the twins should be returning to school to continue to work on improving their draft stock.
“It’d be good for both of them to go back next year,” said the scout. “That’s what I’d advise them to do. I don’t think anybody is really high on them.”
The scout said that his team would be unlikely to draft either of the Harrisons, and that they would benefit from a return to Kentucky where they can take another your to showcase their speed and explosiveness, which some teams appear to be questioning.
“They’ve got to work on those things in the summer to better their chances,” the scout said. “Right now they don’t have that, so they’re kind of average. They did help themselves in the tournament. Andrew moved up, kind of high second round or maybe late first. But before all of that, they weren’t even in some teams’ top 60.”
Andrew and Aaron are genuinely torn on whether they declare and they plan on continuing to discuss their options with their family over the next few days, so it appears that a decision is still not in sight.
Whether or not the twins end up declaring or returning to Kentucky is yet to be seen, but we will know for sure by April 27.
