Providence Friars' star point guard Bryce Cotton went without his name being called in the 2014 NBA Draft on Thursday evening. Nearly 24 hours later, it appears he may have finally landed a destination.
The much-accomplished point guard is heading to the San Antonio Spurs, per a report from the Providence Journal's Kevin McNamara.
Looks like Bryce Cotton, Melvin Ejim and Durand Scott all could be w Spurs in Vegas summer league next month. @projo— Kevin McNamara (@KevinMcNamara33) June 28, 2014
McNamara would later add a very interesting nugget regarding Cotton and NBA teams' willingness to take him on:
Word is multiple teams would've drafted Bryce Cotton if agreed to go overseas for a yr. Now will make go of it w Spurs.— Kevin McNamara (@KevinMcNamara33) June 28, 2014
This seems to add fuel to the fire that Cotton was not thought highly by many going into the 2014 NBA Draft. Cotton was ranked No. 71 by DraftExpress in their Top 100 prospects board, and was not projected by several experts to be drafted.
The report has yet to be fully confirmed, and we will be sure to update you if Cotton is indeed headed to the Vegas Summer League with the San Antonio Spurs.
