Former Kentucky guard Aaron Harrison had a deal in place with a Turkish professional team, but has reportedly backed out at the last minute.
Sportnado, a foreign sports outlet, reports Harrison will not play for Galatasaray as originally planned next season.
After initially agreeing to a deal with Galatasaray, Aaron Harrison decided to turn down the deal with the team, a source told @Sportando . Still not clear the reason behind his decision but, of course, economic crisis in Turkey could have played a role.

Harrison has played for the Charlotte Hornets and the Dallas Mavericks since entering the NBA as an undrafted free agent in 2015.
He finished last season with the Mavericks, where he averaged 6.7 points per game in nine games with the team. As an unrestricted free agent this offseason, Harrison played for the Washington Wizards’ summer league team, but still unfortunately came away unemployed.
No word on whether or not Harrison will continue to pursue his NBA dreams or search for a professional team elsewhere.
