SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – When the Utah Jazz host the Perth Wildcats Saturday night at Vivint SmartHome Arena, there will be a familiar face on the opposing team.

Bryce Cotton, who played in 15 games for the Jazz in the 2014-15 season, has become a star in NBL in Australia, earning league MVP with the Wildcats last season after leading the league in scoring with 19.8 points per game.

Cotton’s time with the Jazz was highlighted by a monstrous alley oop dunk in Utah’s 109-92 win over the Dallas Mavericks on April 13, 2015.

As for how Cotton has changed as a player since his Jazz days, he says not much is different.

“I would say I’m the exact same player with a little more facial hair,” he said with a laugh to the Deseret News’ Eric Woodyard.

“Obviously for us to play an NBA team is great for our league. It’s our first time playing against an NBA team even though they did it last year. It’s just a great opportunity all the way around,” said Cotton.

The game between the Jazz and the Wildcats will tip off Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Vivint SmartHome Arena.
