While others continue to speculate on the NBA draft status of twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison, one of the players says he’s not worried about that at all.
Freshman guard Aaron Harrison says he does not monitor his NBA draft stock and that he does “not really” pay attention to what NBA draft analysts says about his ability. Some analysts have the Harrisons not even being picked in the 2014 draft, but list them as first round picks in 2015.
“Not at all. I haven’t thought about it at all,” said Aaron Harrison about how much he thinks about coming back to UK or leaving for the NBA.
Instead, Harrison insists he’s more worried about helping UK win going into Saturday’s game with LSU.
“We just have to stay focused and fix the few things that we’ve broken down on and make sure we’re aware of them and just try to fix them,” he said.
Harrison knows the time is running out to fix problems and get on a roll.
“But we all knew that coming to Kentucky. It’s not like basketball is supposed to be fair or anything like that. I think we just got a few minor things to get together and we’ll do just fine,” he said.
Does this team have just a one-window season because of possible early exits to the NBA?
“I have no idea. I don’t know,” he said.
