Harrisons Waiting For Feedback From NBA Before Making Decision

Andrew and Aaron Harrison are continuing to weigh their options about returning to Kentucky for their sophomore season or leaving for the NBA.

The Harrisons are waiting for feedback from the NBA before reaching a decision.

“I just sent the paperwork in two or three days ago,” Aaron Harrison Sr told Fox 26. “I talked to a gentleman at the NBA and he said he would get it to me as fast as possible and then we’ll go from there. 

“It’s important. You’re trying to find out what the prospects are for them and where they’ll be drafted and all those things.” 

“It’s basically my career really,” Aaron said. “Don’t leave anything out. Think about all the angles and everything that goes into it and just try to make the best choice for your family.”

“It’s tough,” Andrew added. “You got to keep praying on it and just keep talking with your family and see what’s the best thing for you and your family.”

Jabari Parker Declares For 2014 NBA Draft

Jabari Parker will declare for the 2014 NBA Draft.

"I realize how much of a privilege and an honor it is to join the ranks of the NBA," wrote Parker. "I will do everything in my power to help deliver championships to the franchise that drafts me. At the same time, I recognize the obligation to represent the league in an admirable way off the court."

Parker played one season at Duke.

"Up to this point I haven't given any thought to agents. But now that I've declared, I will turn my attention to the process of choosing someone to represent me. Money was not a factor in my decision to go pro. It won't be a factor in my choice of an agent. My number one criterion in choosing a college coach was an impeccable reputation for integrity. I'm looking for the same thing in an agent.

"This past year at Duke has been a cherished chapter in my life. I'm very fortunate to have worn the blue and white. And I will always carry with me the memories of playing in front of the Crazies at Cameron. Now it's time to write the next chapter. I can't wait to get started."

"As he started making calls, my mom came up and we met with Coach. The three of us decided that as far as my basketball career, both present and future, and the chance to finish my degree, including possibly needing to take just one class during my final semester, that my initial decision was the correct one. I'm vowing to improve my consistency and am looking forward to a great final season."
