Kentucky Wildcats shooting guard Aaron Harrison is now an NBA player after the Charlotte Hornets reportedly invited him to play for their summer league team, according to Jeff Goodman.

After going undrafted in this year's NBA Draft, Aaron will now begin his NBA career in July's summer league in Orlando. Aaron will forever be remembered for his three straight game-winning 3-pointers during UK's thrilling 2014 NCAA Tournament run. The sophomore averaged 12.4 points in his two-year career with the Wildcats and sunk 121 career 3-pointers, a mark that ranks 22nd all-time in Kentucky's record books.

Aaron Harrison started all but one game in his 79 career appearances. He was a Second Team All-SEC selection as a sophomore and a two-time All-SEC Tournament Team selection. For his career, he shot 41 percent from the field and 33.5 percent from behind the arc. He finishes just 21 points shy of joining UK's 1,000-point club.

Congratulations to Aaron on becoming a professional basketball player.

And thanks for the memories!
