As Eurohoops had reported, Aaron Harrison signed a deal with Galatasaray and thus will compete in the Turkish League as well as the 7DAYS EuroCup competition. The deal eventually became official on Wednesday, September 5. The 23-year old has never played for a team in Europe, as he has spent his career on the other side of the Atlantic, playing in the G-League and the NBA. Last year, Harrison played in nine NBA games for the Dallas Mavericks, averaging 6.7 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
After a long negotiation and several ups and downs, now finally seems that American guard is Aaron Harrison is heading to Galatasaray. As reported by several Turkish media and confirmed to Sportando, the two sides have finally reached an agreement on a one-year deal.
After it was announced that he will enter the 2017 NBA Draft, the Turkish young star of Galatasaray Ege Ar talked to Eurohoops about this highly important decision of his career and how he feels with the prospect of being picked by an NBA team. “It’s so exciting for me to enter the NBA Draft,” he said.“This season I am having better year individually with Galatasaray jersey. Obviously playing in Pertevniyal (in Turkish 2nd division) with double licence has a big effect on this. After this improvement on my performance, I have decided to make this choice.”
“Of course it’s not certain that i am going to be drafted this year. But there is still time for the draft and me, my family and my agent are going to make steps for future progress”, added the 20-year-old power forward.
