The Phoenix Suns announced today they have signed free agent guard Bryce Cotton. The third GATORADE Call-Up in the NBA this season, Cotton has averaged 22.0 points on 58.7 percent shooting from the field, 61.9 percent from three-point territory and 91.3 percent from the free-throw line in four games with the Austin Spurs of the NBA Development League.
Vaulet’s future remains unsettled. He could stay in Argentina, move to Europe or be signed by either Brooklyn or its new Long Island Nets D-League team. Under D-League rules, second round picks can sign with a team’s affiliate without counting against the parent club’s roster. He is seen as more of a long term project, but may still be growing and has great length and athleticism although his shooting leaves a lot to be desired. Vaulet said his release and his physique are the two things he needs to most improve. “I know that a development process lies ahead, in trying to reach the United States,” he told Clarin, a Buenos Aires newspaper. “No rushing anything. If it can be next year It will be next year, if it has to be in five years will be in five and you need to be in ten will be in ten. It is now possible, everything will depend on me, my preparation, my development and my enjoyment of the process.”
