Wildcats sign Mason Bragg for 2 more seasons
"The Perth Wildcats have secured the services of exciting young gun Mason Bragg, as the club looks to inject youth and depth to its roster looking ahead.
Bragg's new contract will see him remain a Wildcat for a further two seasons following the current NBL campaign - with a club option at the end of the 2017/18 season.
The Wildcats are focused on sustaining the club’s history of success by maintaining a constant retooling phase.
Trevor Gleeson said the lightning fast 23-year-old has a big future.
"He’s got great tenacity out there. He’s still raw, but he plays at a level which could send him in another direction," he said.
“We can see the potential in him, I think he has a bright future, and I hope he’s a Wildcat for a long time."
With injuries to Wildcats point guards Damian Martin and Jarrod Kenny, Mason Bragg has played 10 games so far in the current season.
Bragg became a fan favourite quickly after his debut in November – the Red Army appreciating his gutsy style of basketball.
He’s scored 21 points, shooting at 43%, and racked up seven assists and 11 rebounds.
Under current NBL rules, the 23-year-old will be eligible to remain a development player next season, and will need to vie for a contract position in 2018/19.
Mason Bragg is from Burnie, Tasmania, and was recruited from the NW Tasmanian Thunder."
