Aaron Harrison joins Charlotte for NBA Summer League


It did not take long for Aaron Harrison to find a landing spot for the summer. Harrison will be a member of the Charlotte Hornets next month as he competes in the NBA Summer League for an official roster spot in the pros.

Coach Cal believes his former shooting guard will be fine:

Summer League action begins July 4 in Orlando, although the teams for that event have not been announced. Harrison will definitely be in Las Vegas with the Hornets from July 10-20 for that 67-game showcase.

In the meantime, he can use the Courier-Journal’s front page for additional motivation:

I can think of bigger stories from last night to fill that prime spot.

    What a joke the Courier Journal is. I hope no one gives them any clicks.

    Charlotte is a great spot for Aaron. All the talk leading into the draft was about how terrible a 3-point shooting team they were, and that they’d take Booker at 9. Hopefully Aaron can have a good summer and knock down the 3 consistently. Good luck to him.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. A knockdown shooter is exactly what Charlotte needs, and if Aaron can shake this slump he’s been in since March and, based on reports, though his workouts, he would be a perfect fit for them. With his body and proven track record as a clutch shooter, even if he is still slumping, Charlotte would be wish to sign him and send him to the D-league for a while to work out the kinks – it could pay nice dividends for them by mid-season!

    An article for Aaron to read for inspiration and comfort.

    Sad to say but there were many that predicted Aaron would go undrafted so that wasn’t exactly breaking news. The C-J is a dinosaur controlled by the evil master mind at UL. I think unofficially the “J” now stands for Jurich. I quit getting sports information from them years ago. They seem to have forgotten that they have readership outside of Louisville…or maybe they don’t..who knows? who cares?

    UL fans hate the CJ just as much as UK fans….

    Charlotte isnt playing in Vegas. Theyre in the Orlando league. Do 2 seconds of research, dummy.

    I’d like to see an official hashtag from BBN specific to Aaron. He did amazing things for us and I’d love to see an outpouring of continued support for him during this process.

    Glad to see Aaron grab a spot with Hornets. Can see him making the team as a role player and hopefully developing into more. The Hornets under Jordan are nuts….. Thought all along he shoulda came back but with his brother leaving and the class coming in he pretty much had no choice but to leave given the assembly line that is UK basketball. Andrew will be a better pro than college player I do believe.
