PC’s Cotton goes undrafted by NBA

Thursday, June 26, 2014

 

Perhaps it's just a temporary setback.  For now, the road to reach the NBA just got a little bit tougher for PC's Bryce Cotton.

Cotton, the senior and two-time 1st team all-Big East selection from Tucson, AZ, was bypassed by the 30 NBA teams through the two round, 60-selection draft held Thursday night in Brooklyn, NY at the Barclays Center.  Cotton finished his four year career at PC as the 5th all-time leading scorer in school history with 1975 points, and averaged 21.8 points in almost 40 minutes per game during the Friars' run to a Big East championship in 2014.  Shooting almost 37% from three-point range, he also led the Big East in assists with 5.9 per game.

Cotton worked out for several NBA teams over the past two months, including taking two trips to Sacramento to work out for the Kings.  With high interest from several teams, it's almost a certainty he'll receive an opportunity to play in the NBA summer league for a team, with an invitation to go to training camp for a shot to make a roster.

Recent draftees from Providence College include Ricky Ledo, who was taken with the 43rd overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2013, and Marshon Brooks, selected in 2011's first round by the Boston Celtics.  In all, 41 former Friars have been selected in the NBA Draft since it began in 1960.  The draft was reduced to the present two-round event in 1989.
