According to NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Aaron Harrison has agreed to a two-year deal with the Charlotte Hornets. After a rough start to the summer, Aaron’s impressed a lot of people within the Hornets’ organization with his play in the Summer League – including head coach Steve Clifford.

Harrison’s deal includes a partial guarantee this season, and a team option for next year. Way to go, Aaron.

    SOOOOOOO happy for Aaron! After a terrible start he played hard, didn’t get discouraged, and just keep at it. Kudos!!!!!

    Why is this something to celebrate? Cal took a Top 10 player out of high school and coached him down to signing a one year contract (it’s not a two year contract with the second year a team option). #FAIL.

      Your boy Pitino has taken three 5 star McDonald’s All Americans and had them go undrafted.

      And if Aaron never works again after these two years, his lifetime earnings are going to be more than yours.

      Perhaps Pitino is not on the “one and done” track! Still reeling over Andrew Harrison’s racist remarks after losing in the NCAA tourney. Classless.

      Still reeling over how many Louisville players have been arrested. Classless.

    These second round contracts are usually, what, between 500k and 900k for both years, but only the first year is guaranteed?

    Aaron Harrison will be a star for the Hornets.

    Awesome!!! Best news of the day, I am so happy for the kid. He will be a all star, wait and see. Now if his bro gets signed all will be good. Again, can’t express how happy this makes me.

    Of the three – Aaron, Andrew, and Dakari – a lot of BBN thought Aaron would be the one who didn’t make it. I’m very happy he proved them wrong.

      You actually had to say to yourself, “My life sucks so bad that I have nothing better to do than to use my time to try to annoy people.”, when you decided to write this post. I feel sorry for you. Keep your chin up Jim, you might find reason to live any day now.

      Your stupid football team had ten draft picks and couldn’t win crap Jim. See, we can all play this game.

      UNC and Florida were the other two teams to have 4 lottery picks. They won titles, but the core of their rosters were Juniors and Seniors. UK came up short (38-1), but 3 of their 4 lottery picks were freshmen. Have those kids play together for another year or two and they’re cutting nets.

      By the way UL fans, get your jabs in now, because you all are going to be AWFUL this season.

    Anyone who thinks he will be a “star” clearly doesn’t watch the NBA

    Are yall kidding!? Aaron Harrison doesnt have the skillset to be a NBA allstar. Be happy Cal pulled the strings and got a team to take him. He will play a few years and fade out.

    You seem to have Aaron confused with Terry Rozier.

      This was supposed to be a reply to Ramone, but my phone decided that was not to be.

    Congratulations, Aaron, and best of luck in your chosen career! It’ll be a tough challenge, but you have what it takes to make it.
