2015 Draft Profile - Aaron HarrisonStrengths
Aaron Harrison, twin of brother Andrew Harrison, is known as the fearless Harrison who can knock down clutch shots when called upon. Although inconsistent during his two years at Kentucky, Harrison is a three-point specialist that can light it up when he's in rhythm. Even when struggling throughout a game, Harrison has the confidence to keep shooting. He moves well without the ball and knows when to slash to the basket when being played too close.
And while neither Harrison put up spectacular numbers in Lexington, Aaron showed he's a strong, athletic combo guard that can play on both ends of the floor. With good size and length, Harrison is more than a one-way player. He's athletic enough to play aggressive on offense, while using his athleticism to go up against bigger athletes than him defensively.
As many big shots as Harrison hit while at Kentucky, he still goes into the draft with a lot of questions concerning his transitioning into the NBA. Known as a three-point shooter, he's been an inconsistent shooter, which is his biggest NBA attribute right now. When he's hitting his shots, he looks like a fine prospect, however when he doesn't, there's little he contributes to offensively.
Another big improvement Harrison needs to work on is his ball-handling skills. To succeed at the next level, he's going to have to learn to be more than just a catch-and-shoot type of player. Having better ball-handling abilities will allow him to get higher percentage shots while learning not to rely so much on shooting only from the perimeter.
Harrison also has needs to work on his attitude on and off the court, so it doesn't reflect his game and those around him. As a player who has enough questionable concerns heading into the draft, the way Harrison conducts himself when struggling could be a big warning for teams interested in him.
