Of the seven University of Kentucky players who entered their names into NBA Draft, only Aaron Harrison went undrafted on Thursday night.
ESPN reported early Friday morning that its sources said that Harrison will play for the Charlotte Hornets' summer league team in July.
The Wildcats had six players picked — Karl-Anthony Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein, Trey Lyles and Devin Booker in the first round; Andrew Harrison and Dakari Johnson in the second round — to match a record set by the 2011-2012 Kentucky team and the 1976-77 UNLV team.
Had Harrison been drafted, UK would have set a new record for selections from a single school in a single draft.
Never miss a local story.
"I'm disappointed Aaron didn't get drafted, but he will be fine," UK Coach John Calipari tweeted after the draft. "He will be on a summer league team fighting for a position on an NBA team."
Harrison made a name for himself during his freshman season during the Cats' surprise run to the NCAA title game. He hit game-changing shots in the waning moments of back-to-back games against Louisville, Michigan and Wisconsin.
He averaged 12.4 points and shot 41 percent for his UK career. He played in 79 games, starting in 78.
