Kentucky Wildcats point guard Andrew Harrison is now an NBA player.

Andrew served as the floor general for two seasons at UK, leading the Cats to consecutive Final Fours. He'll now look to lead the Phoenix Suns, who took him with the No. 44 pick in this year's draft. He now joins fellow Cats Eric Bledsoe, Archie Goodwin, Brandon Knight and Devin Booker.

Harrison was later traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, according to Yahoo Sports:

The 6-foot-6 point guard averaged 10.1 points and churned out 298 career assists in 79 career contests, starting all but one game for the Wildcats during his tenure.

Andrew Harrison's 298 career dimes ranks 16th all-time in UK's record books, which are the most for a two-year player in program history. He earned a spot on the 2015 All-SEC Tournament Team and was a member of the Midwest All-Region Team after sinking the game-winning free throws against Notre Dame to send Kentucky to its 17th Final Four in program history.

Congratulations to Andrew on becoming a professional basketball player.
