Yahoo Sports reported Saturday night that former University of Kentucky guard Aaron Harrison, who went undrafted last month, has agreed to a two-year deal with the Charlotte Hornets.
Yahoo's sources said the deal includes a partial guarantee for this season, and a team option for next year.
Harrison averaged 13.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.4 steals per game for the Hornets in the Orlando Summer League.
He will head to Charlotte's training camp, and he'll likely need to earn a spot as a point guard after playing on the wing in high school and college.
Never miss a local story.
Patrick Ewing, the Hornets' summer league coach, had been tough with his critiques of Harrison early in Orlando. But he praised the ex-Cat's efforts after a win last Tuesday.
"I think he's doing a fantastic job," Ewing said. "He's running the ball club, he's taking his shots when he has to and he's also sharing it with other guys on the team.
"He's playing a little bit out of position because he's more of a two guard, but I think in order for him to make an NBA roster that's the position he's going to have to play — the point."
Harrison was the only one of the seven Kentucky players entered in this year's draft to not be selected. Karl-Anthony Towns was the No. 1 pick. Willie Cauley-Stein, Trey Lyles and Devin Booker were lottery picks. And Andrew Harrison, Aaron's twin brother, and Dakari Johnson were selected in the second round.
