The pic looks like a clothing logo. But the timing would be really bad after you just announced you were (possibly) leaving the place you've been loved for 3 years. Wouldn't be great for sales.

His opting-out announcement mentions something his team had been working on and that was unrelated to him opting out, and so I assume unrelated to a subsequent signing?

You wouldn't farewell Wildcats fans if you were going to take an ownership stake or start a local business.

Personal brand thing of some sort? Is anything short of NBA "big news" though?

Only decent big thing would be something to do with his citizenship, if it has been worked hard on is only real clue. But if its some crap clothing line then POQ.

Why would you opt out of your contract to naturalise and then make a launch announcement? The implication in his other post was that the opting-out was unrelated to whatever this is.

Just about ruling out this being a big announcement in the context of forum hoopsters!

Pretty expensive. $65 for a T-shirt. The company that's attached (Aeroture) is also selling signed prints for $990, you could get his game worn jersey signed for $700 in the wildcats auction last week.

It's not the big news I expected.
Perthworld could have been simply making reference to Cotton as in his surname

We understand where the reference to Cotton came from. It's the fact he said it was going to be hand-picked which is the issue.

If you genuinely don't understand why it's racist then feel free to ask. If you're going to try and defend it then you can fuck off.

Opts out of Australian contract. Launches t-shirts on .com.au domain with Australian product fulfilment. (Obviously they'd been working on this long before he opted out.)

Remember he's got an Australian wife and child. He's not cutting ties with the country forever.

Info on shirts/costs

The tee's are AS Colour Staple Tees.

You can buy them for about $20 each.

With a single colour print on the front and back and a fabric tag on the sleeve, they are going to be making less than $30 a tee.

Personally I would not buy one. They are uninspiring.

I don't knock the hustle, in fact this makes me think Cotton was happy staying in Perth for at least another 12 months but salary restrictions have forced him to look elsewhere.

I don't mind the shirts, just out of the price range I'm willing to pay for a casual T-shirt.

Real odd time to do this for a number of reasons.

No 1- Opts out and leaves the NBL, as much as people have said they are all good with it, they'd sit back and say he wants to go but here is a shirt i would like you to buy to help me out financially, which leads into my second point

No - Current economic client, a lot of people have bigger financial issues at the moment than forking out for a 65 dollar t shirt or a 990 print, that if you searched the internet, i'm sure you could download something similar and get it framed for half the price.

This may have been in the planning long before the virus, but surely you could role this back, given everything that is currently going on in the world.

The other thing with this, as much as i have loved him playing for Perth and wish him nothing but the best, his market for a product like this would only be in Perth, he is not that big of a name worldwide that you'd think people are interested in.

Should follow Sydney's lead and try to apply to the league and have Cotton join as a next gen player.

If he gets desperate he can give them to the Cats who will be able to use them. They were still shooting Casey Prather T's out of the TShirt cannon into the crowd 2 years after he left!

Good idea above, wildcats by $300g worth and put them out for free in first game, buy one plus get one free, should cover his wage and his T shirt income.

Everyone wants to have their own clothes brand these days haha

How many in Australia would be able to pull it off? I'm afraid Cotton would be "niche".

Simmons, maybe even Mills, Delly, Bogut can pull it off to an extent in a local Aussie market. Even then can’t imagine it really being that much of a profitable proposition.

A lot of people actually do have their own clothing brand.

It's not hard and quite easy to do.

Especially with graphic design skills now being more common/everyday, anyone can whip up a design, find a printer and t-shirt supplier. It's not rocket science.
