Harrison has a chance to help a hurting Hornets team


Last night all Kentucky fans could sigh a big breathe of relief as Aaron Harrison signed a two-year deal with the Hornets. Especially since the Hornets brought Jeremy Lin to the team earlier this week.

For those of you aren’t up to date on the inner workings of the Hornets, the team traded Lance Stephenson and lost Gerald Henderson in the swap to acquire Nic Batum, leaving a void at the 2-guard. Last year, the Hornets picked up P.J. Hairston in the first-round of the draft, but he hasn’t looked like the answer to that positional problem.

This is what Bleacher Report had to say about Harrison.

“Even if he isn’t ready for the NBA right away, Harrison is worth keeping within the organization to develop. A stint in the D-League seems likely, but the Hornets’ current roster makeup could create a chance for Harrison to make it to the highest level if he flashes enough before the season starts.”

The signing came as a surprise to many who weren’t sure if Harrison would even make it anywhere beyond an overseas league this year. As Kentucky fans, however, we know what the Harrison twins are capable of. It is as if they thrive on being told no.

Harrison has the athleticism the Hornets need and is very coach-able. He has a good chance of developing into a decent bench player with a long NBA career for any team in the NBA.

Good Luck, Aaron!

    Great article about 3 point shooting and how well John Wall sets up shooters.

      You have Aaron confused with Terry Rozier.

      Dear U of L troll:

      First of all, you apparently did not read the article – it says he has now been SIGNED with the Hornets. He’s now officially in the NBA. Second of all, the word would be overseas, not “over sea’s”

    He sucks. Bottom line. Worse than when he was in HS.
