Following a brief stint playing overseas, Andrew Harrison is back in the NBA. The former Kentucky star has just signed a contract with one of the best teams in the league.

Harrison was an excellent player at Kentucky, where he helped lead the program to back-to-back Final Fours.

The Phoenix Suns selected Harrison in the second round of the 2015 NBA Draft. His draft rights were quickly sent over to the Memphis Grizzlies.

It hasn't been a steady NBA career for Harrison, who has bounced around from team to team. However, the Kentucky product has finally found a potentially great situation.

According to ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Golden State Warriors have signed Harrison to a training camp deal.

Harrison will have the chance to compete for a spot on the regular season roster.

Golden State isn't lacking depth when it comes to its backcourt. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson form one of the best duos in basketball, meanwhile D'Angelo Russell has the potential to blossom into a perennial All-Star.

It'll be tough for Andrew Harrison to crack the main roster for the Warriors, but the reigning Western Conference champions don't have much depth on their bench.

Harrison won't be the only former Wildcat suiting up for the Warriors, as he'll reunite with Willie Cauley-Stein this fall.
