Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has waived guard Aaron Harrison. Harrison (6-6, 212, Kentucky) was originally signed by the Hornets on July 14, 2015. The Kentucky product appeared in 26 games over two seasons with Charlotte, including two playoff outings in 2016. Charlotte’s roster now stands at 14.
The Charlotte Hornets are waiving guard Aaron Harrison on Tuesday, league sources told The Vertical. Harrison, 22, has seen limited minutes behind veterans Marco Belinelli and Jeremy Lamb. With both signed through the 2017-18 season, there was little opportunity for Harrison’s role to grow in Charlotte. Harrison played 26 games for the Hornets since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2015, including limited minutes in five games this season.
Aaron Harrison’s contract would have become guaranteed for the season on Friday. Charlotte’s roster will drop to 14 players, and sources say the team has no immediate plans to add a player to replace Harrison.

In a recent episode of the “Inside the Paint” podcast, hosts Ethan Skolnick and Ira Winderman revealed that the Heat have been concerned about Herro’s growing celebrity status as of late. “Tyler Herro chose to become a celebrity,” Winderman said. “He chose to become something outside the game, as is his right. With his breakfast cereal, and his Tyler Tuesdays, and his Chipotle Bowl and that’s all well and good. But you know what? Other players when they see a player doing that before they’ve truly reached it. I don’t want to say there’s a jealousy. … They sort of take a scant view of the guy and say, ‘Wait a minute buddy. You haven’t done anything yet.’”
Skolnick then dropped the bomb that the Heat organization has been concerned about Herro for quite some time. “Ultimately, the team starts to get a certain level of concern,” he said. “In this particular case, the team has been concerned now for months.”
