Why is Bryce Cotton not in the NBA?

Cotton is on another level altogether. Why is he not in the NBA?

Here we go again. Week to week thread.
He is a gun in the NBL, but is a tweener in the NBA who looked completely out of sorts when over there.

He is not in the NBA because he can't take take his NBL referees with him.

I'm sure NBA defenders would be smart enough to not continually jump in to him when trying to close out.

Cotton likes the job security the NBL brings. In the NBA he would be a backup guard at best and even perhaps a third string bench warmer that could get thrown around from team to team.

He needs to improve his tweets to even have a shot at NBA

It comes down to the following:
Attitude;
Defence;
3-point shooting; and
Passing

His attitude just isn't up to what the NBA requires. Far too team orientated, head too far from his arse, and doesn't talk enough shit on twitter.

Defence, he knows how to play it, that's seen as negative in the NBA. If they let player get away with playing D, pretty soon they'll have to start calling some of the travels.

He shoots the 3 far too well. The NB would be forced to move the line back more, needing wider courts, and that would cut into the amount of courtside seating available.

And passing, he's far too unselfish for the NBA

He should be in the NBA! He would be the perfect addition to the LA Lakers for them to win the NBA Championship. His only negative is his height (6 feet). If he happened to be 6 ft 6 inches like Kobe and Michael Jordan, he would definitely be a superstar in the NBA. But the best thing about Bryce is not just his playing ability, he is an absolute class act and a great human being! He will be an incredible asset to whatever team he goes, and we will miss him greatly here in Perth.

Too small - not so much height, but more so frame
Liability on defence
Opportunity... just needs to be the right fit for the right team at the right time.

he has plenty of PG skills but it doesn't make up for his size. the NBA isn't interested in short players anymore because they can't defend anyone.
