Andrew Harrison is getting another shot at the NBA.

This time, it will be with the Golden State Warriors, as Harrison has reportedly agreed to a training camp deal with the team, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Harrison has been bouncing around the NBA, G-League, and even overseas since leaving Kentucky following the 2014-15 season. He was originally a second-round pick of the Memphis Grizzlies, where he played for three years before being waived.

He went on to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers and New Orleans Pelicans, the latter of which being where he played this past season before being waived in January.

Then in February, Harrison signed with Russian club Khimki for the rest of the 2018–19 season.

Now, Harrison will challenge for a roster spot on a Warriors team in a transition phase with Kevin Durant having departed and Klay Thompson likely to miss much of the upcoming season while recovering from a torn ACL.

Harrison will actually get to reunite with former Kentucky teammate Willie Cauley-Stein. The two helped the Wildcats reach consecutive Final Fours during their time in Lexington.
