Kentucky's Harrison twins dropping down ESPN draft board

Herald-Leader Staff ReportJanuary 15, 2014 

The NBA Draft stock of Kentucky's Harrison twins for 2014 remains in doubt, with the latest example being the newly updated player rankings from ESPN’s Chad Ford.

On Wednesday, Ford released his new “Big Board” for this year’s NBA Draft. It showed Andrew Harrison at No. 30 — the last pick of the first round — and Aaron Harrison was not listed at all. Andrew and Aaron were No. 30 and 40, respectively, in Ford’s updated Top 100 player rankings also released Wednesday.

In his online chat later in the day, Ford was asked, “Where do you see the Harrison twins going?”

His response got right to the point.

“Hopefully back to Kentucky for their sophomore seasons,” he said. “Neither looks ready to play in the NBA right now. If they declared for the draft? Probably late first round to early second.”
