Getting to know the newest Spur, Bryce Cotton

Tom Pennington

The San Antonio Spurs have reportedly reached a 2-year deal with point guard Bryce Cotton. He led Providence to the Big East Championship and picked up the Tournament MVP on the way. Let's see what the guys over at Big East Coast Bias have to say about the newest Spur.

Your draftee was a top ten scorer in the nation and averaged 21.8 points per game scoring over 25 points 10 times. We know he can score.

But he's small, and his size will hurt him. It's up to you whether you value his explosiveness and knack for putting the ball in the bucket more. Because of that size, Cotton seems like a viable bench option for most teams.

However, that is not something he is used to. Cotton averaged 39.9 minutes per game last season and was the reason for the Friars' rare success.

Cotton is the type of player that every team can use. He is a quick, shifty point guard that can really score, but in order for the Tucson native to make it on a roster, he is going to have to prove that size does not matter.

With Patty Mills out for 6-7 months the Spurs needed another point guard, but they are running out of roster spots. If the Spurs resign Patty and Boris Diaw they would have 14 of the 15 filled with draftee Kyle Anderson joining the team. The Spurs extended a qualifying offer to Aron Baynes so it looks like Matt Bonner could be on the outside. Who knows though.

While we wait to find out, check out some of Bryce Cotton's highlights from the Big East Tournament.

And here are highlights from his 36 point performance at the NCAA Tournament.
