We now interrupt Matt Elam mania for some interesting basketball scuttlebutt. The Sporting News’ Sean Deveney wrote a piece this morning about the Harrison Twins’ draft prospects, and in it, says that sources say “John Calipari has been telling folks around NBA that his twin recruits, Aaron and Andrew Harrison, will not be entering this year’s draft.”
However, Deveney adds that another “source with knowledge of the situation” is saying not to count the Twins out of the 2014 draft just yet:
But a source with knowledge of the situation said the Harrisons should not be counted out of the ’14 draft just yet. They still are giving strong consideration to entering the draft in June, and while Calipari has influence, the family will make the decision. The Harrisons’ parents were strongly involved in choosing Kentucky last year, remember.
The Twins aren’t listed in Draft Express’ most recent 2014 mock draft, while Andrew comes in at #30 on Chad Ford’s latest Big Board.
Check out Deveney’s article in full to read more of his thoughts about the Twins.
