Cotton reportedly to sign free agent deal
It has been reported (ProjectSpurs) that Bryce Cotton is currently weighing offers from the reigning 2014 NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks in regards to a free agent contract. As it stands, Cotton is set to play for San Antonio’s Las Vegas Summer League team, which will hit the court July 11-21.
Cotton went undrafted in last week’s NBA Draft, despite drawing attraction from a number of teams around the league. Only a few days before the draft, Cotton worked out for the Sacramento Kings and dropped jaws when the generously listed 6’1” Cotton recorded a vertical leap of 46 inches, tied for the highest out of any player in pre-draft workouts.
Obviously reports can change, but more than one reputable source broke the same news over the weekend. It looks like Cotton will at least get the shot that we all know he deserves.
Batts to play for Magic in summer league
Kadeem Batts has agreed to play for the Orlando Magic’s Summer League team, which is set to play in the Orlando league from July 5-11.
Like Cotton, Batts worked out for a number of NBA teams prior to the draft, with the hopes to be given a shot to prove himself in the summer league.
Batts averaged 12.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game last season during his senior year with the Friars.
Friar recruit Mitchell visits Providence
Brewster Academy shooting guard, Donovan Mitchell, visited Providence on Friday and everything seems to have gone well.
