I wonder if we'll see any Wildcats/NBL players follow him over there, similar to Tate with Weaver at Rockets (and then also Cam Oliver).

Maybe even Cotton could get thrown an NBA lifeline on a 1-2 year deal.

I think the NBA is past Cotton now in terms of timeline.

Depends where Trev ends up. You’d think Mooney might have some suitors.

Yeah I think Cotton is unlikely, a couple of years ago it would have been perfect for him. Depending on the team though he could potentially get a shot.

Hopefully this gives Perth a good connection for potential Next Stars and draft/stash type imports.

I get your thinking, but I'm not sure those kind of players are great for winning championships.

I'm a bit surprised he's off to Japan at this stage of his career if he still has NBA aspirations. Its not the kind of league you see the NBA pluck guys from. I would have thought NBL/Europe/G-league would be better options for another year or so and then start chasing that big bag in Asia if the NBA dream looks out of reach.

Wonder how the Cats scouting will go now that Gleeson/Roth/Chance have left. They have had generally excellent recruiting with Gleeson at the helm.

Yeah, this aspect concerns me just as much as losing his coaching ability. He has built a good network in the states.
(Hopefully that network somehow stays in place and he becomes a part of it at the far end. Send some Raptors our way, Trev!)

Massive blow for the Cats.
Still yet to sign any new players. They seem to be taking their time.
I wonder if the SEG acquisition actually does have anything to do with it...
