Calipari projects that Willie Cauley-Stein, Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison, Karl-Anthony Towns and Trey Lyles will declare for the NBA draft. He's not so sure about Dakari Johnson and Devin Booker. "It's time to take another step," Cauley-Stein told reporters after the Wildcats' loss to Wisconsin. "I mean, obviously, I'm not 100 percent on it, but I'm pretty sure I know what I want to do. Gotta talk to a couple more people, but probably was my last game here. "... You know, we'll never be on the same team like this again. That's going to set in. We got a month of school left with each other, and that's it. I mean, that's what you'll remember." ESPN.com

Twin guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison said they need to meet with their family, same as last year when they surprised many and returned for a sophomore season. But a tough call is made even tougher now because Andrew is the only brother currently forecast to be picked in 2015 – and only barely, as he's outside the top 50 prospects. "I think I gotta take some time," Aaron said, "because you can't make the right decision with emotion on you." Louisville Courier-Journal

Andrew Harrison apologized on Twitter for his apparent racial slur about Frank Kaminsky on the podium after Wisconsin’s victory in the national semifinals and an NBA scout told SNY.tv the comment likely won’t impact Harrison’s draft stock. “First i want to apologize for my poor choice of words used in jest towards a player I respect and know,” Harrison Tweeted. “When I realized how this could be perceived I immediately called big frank to apologize and let him know I didn’t mean any disrespect. “We had a good conversation and I wished him good luck in the championship game Monday.” ZagsBlog.com

An NBA scout told SNY.tv the comment likely wouldn’t impact the sophomore guard’s NBA Draft stock. “No, [it was] out of frustration probably,” the scout said. ZagsBlog.com

Karl Anthony-Towns is Kentucky’s best NBA prospect by far and Andrew and Aaron Harrison look like borderline first-round draft picks, one veteran NBA scout who was at Kentucky’s combine over the weekend told SNY.tv. “Karl Towns is their best prospect and it’s not close, it’s not close,” said the scout, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he’s not permitted to comment on draft prospects.

Although there is a glut of frontcourt talent, the backcourt is not as deep, so the decisions of guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison are especially intriguing and important. An NBA scout for one of the Eastern Conference's premier teams believes the choice is obvious. "It'd be good for both of them to go back next year," said the scout, who requested anonymity because he is not authorized to discuss draft prospects. "That's what I'd advise them to do. I don't think anybody is really high on them." cincinnati.com

The belief in NBA circles is that the 6-foot-6 twin brothers remain genuinely torn, the scout said. One Eastern Conference general manager told him the twins' father, Aaron Sr., wanted his sons to declare for the draft, but a lukewarm response from the league has given the family some pause. cincinnati.com
