Aaron Harrison Signs Overseas Contract
The Aaron Harrison train keeps on rolling. The former Wildcat and NCAA Tournament star has just signed a deal with KK Cedevita Olimpija, a professional basketball organization located in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
He is one of three Americans in the program, joining former Indiana star, Yogi Ferrell, as well as, Josh Adams, who played for Wyoming back in 2012-16.
The club competes in the ABA League and the EuroCup, as well as in the Slovenian League.
The club was established in 2019 after the merger of the most successful Slovenian club Olimpija and the Croatian powerhouse Cedevita.
Congratulations to Aaron who is still doing this thing for a livin' and is showing the rest of the world just how good he still is. The former undrafted star from Kentucky has found himself making pitstops in Charlotte (Hornets) from 2015-17, with the Greensboro Swarm (G-League) in 2017, followed by the Delaware 87ers that same year (G-League), then with Reno Bighorns (G-League) from 2017-18 right before getting his big break with the Dallas Mavericks on March 22, 2018, signing a 10-day contract. Nine days later after playing just four games he signed with the Mavericks for the rest of the season. He did not receive a qualifying offer from the Mavericks after the season though, sadly. Since then, he has played for Galatasaray (2018-20), Olympiacos (2020-21), and Turk Telecom (2021-22).
Now he's headed to Slovenia!
