Cotton averaged 19.3 points per game this season and was named the NBL Regular Season MVP for the Perth Wildcats.
Here is the announcement of the Cotton signing with his new team including a, let’s say, rather remedial photoshop of Cotton onto a Brescia Leonessa uniform.

Someone might need some classes on how to use Photoshop because that picture of Bryce looks absolutely ridiculous.
Cotton’s new squad is currently in third place in the very competitive league so it looks like they are making that final push to get them a championship this year.
Cotton knows how to step up in big games to win championships, just like he did last season when he was added to Perth’s team down the stretch, eventually winning Finals MVP honors.
There are some other Americans on Leonessa Bresica:
Marcus Landry (brother of Carl Landy) who played at the University of Wisconsin.
Lee Moore played two years of Community College at Wallace State before transferring to UTEP.
Dario Hunt played at the University of Nevada.
David Moss played at Indiana State University.
Best of luck to Bryce in his search for another Championship!
