Bryce Cotton To Play In Australia

Former Providence guard Bryce Cotton, who spent parts of the last two seasons in the NBA, is headed back overseas, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. A source tells Carchia that Cotton has agreed to a deal with the Perth Wildcats, and will play in Australia.

Cotton, 24, went undrafted out of college in 2014, but caught on with the Jazz for 15 games in 2014/15, and had brief stints with both the Suns and the Grizzlies last season. In 23 total NBA games, the 6’1″ point guard has averaged a modest 3.8 PPG on .418/.304/.833 shooting.

In addition to his NBA experience, Cotton has also logged some D-League action and played for multiple teams overseas, including the Xinjiang Flying Tigers in China last season. Earlier this year, he signed with Turkey’s Anadolu Efes. However, the team – based out of Istanbul – decided about two weeks ago to replace him with Sixers camp invitee Brandon Paul.

Cotton will be joining a Perth club that currently sits in last place in Australia’s NBL, but most of the league’s teams are bunched together in the standings. At 7-9, the Wildcats could still make a run, with the help of Cotton.
