Andrew and Aaron Harrison have been taken off of most analyst’s mock 2014 NBA Draft board, but could the twins still be planning on taking a chance at the next level?

According to ESPN.com’s NBA Draft expert Chad Ford, Kentucky could have four to five players leaving for the draft after the season.
For the second straight year, UK has under performed and this year, they can’t blame some of that on a major injury. From what I can gather, most, if not all of them want to come to the NBA now — including the Harrison twins. Randle is the only clear cut guy. He’s a Top 10 pick and probably Top 5. Lots of scouts like James Young. The rest is a pretty mixed bag at this point. But I think you’ll see at least four or five in the draft this year.
Some, not all believe, the Harrison Twins should stay another year to develop, especially on the defensive end. Aaron is averaging 13.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game so far this season. Andrew is averaging 10.8 point, three rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.
It is hard to say that one more year would be beneficial to both of them. They have NBA size, but not sure if they can compete with the big boys yet.
