As part of our coverage leading up to the 2015 NBA Draft we will provide profiles of more than 60 prospects, including video interviews with each player, what they're saying leading up to draft day as well as their potential fit on the Bulls.
Andrew Harrison, G, Kentucky
6'5" | 213 lbs. | 20 years old
9.3 points, 2.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 38.3 3FG%, 25.5 minutes
"I just want to be on the best team with the best opportunity for myself. I just felt like I was ready. I felt like I accomplished the college game and I matured over the two years. I think I was ready and that I was the best point guard in the draft."
Fit for the Bulls:
The Bulls don't have a second-round pick in this year's draft, and Harrison isn't an option at No. 22. If the Bulls were to get back into the second round, Harrison certainly would fill a need. The starting point guard on last year's historic Kentucky team, Harrison has excellent size, distributes out of the pick and roll well and has an improving 3-point shot. Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks simply didn't get the job done behind Derrick Rose, especially late in the season and into the playoffs. They need to upgrade behind Derrick Rose, and while the last Kentucky point guard the Bulls drafted didn't work out so well (Marquis Teague) Harrison is an intriguing prospect on the second unit.
