It looks like Aaron Harrison will be on an NBA roster in the 2015-16 season.
After going undrafted in the 2015 NBA Draft, Aaron was quick to join the Charlotte Hornets on their NBA Summer League roster. An impressive showing in the Orlando Summer League not only earned him an invite to training camp, but a contract in the process.
According to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, Aaron will sign a two-year deal with the Hornets that will even have a partial guarantee for this season:

Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer confirmed the deal:
The @hornets did right thing by getting Aaron Harrison into their camp. Might make no difference. But he's 1st intriguing prospect in years.— Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell) July 12, 2015
Harrison averaged 13.4 points in five summer league games and also had 4.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists per contest. His most impressive game came vs. Andrew Harrison's Memphis team, in which Aaron scored 16 points and dished out eight assists while grabbing four boards.
Congratulations to Aaron on getting his chance to be one an NBA roster for this upcoming season.
