NBA: Preseason-Charlotte Hornets at Minnesota Timberwolves Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Aaron Harrison’s pro basketball career hasn’t been perfect, but the former Wildat star and ice-veins shooter is back in the league with a chance to prove himself.

Harrison is getting a 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks. Maybe Mark Cuban was impressed with Harrison’s recent 45-point performance in the G-League with the Reno Bighorns. Or, maybe he’s just been spending a lot of time on social media and has seen the amount of play that Harrison’s clutch shots from his college days are getting.

I’d like to think it’s a little bit of both.
