Wildcats Off-Season Wrap – 10 July 2017

Perth Wildcats players at the NBA Summer League highlight this week’s edition of the Off-Season Wrap.

In case you haven’t heard, Casey Prather, Bryce Cotton and new Wildcat Corey Webster are all representing NBA clubs in the Las Vegas tournament – where fringe NBA players strut their stuff in front of the eyes of the basketball world.

It will come as no surprise to the Red Army that the Wildcats 2016 and 2017 MVP has impressed while representing the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In two games Prather’s averaged 22 minutes, while scoring eight points and 14 points.

With 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per game, his defence has caught the eye of American media.

Bryce Cotton is playing for Atlanta but so far hasn’t produced his scintillating best. His next game is at 4am Tuesday against the Bulls, where he’ll hope for the opportunity to turn that around.

Corey Webster has made a solid start to his campaign with the Dallas Mavericks.

Webster has added seven points and five points in his two games so far.

 

Back home, Mason Bragg’s East Perth Eagles took on Dexter Kernich-Drew’s Rockingham Flames in the SBL – the Flames taking it out in a high scoring thriller as the Wildcats young guns impressed.

Kernich-Drew had a season-high mammoth total of 38 points, as well as nine rebounds, to lead his side, while Bragg had season-high points and assist numbers to go 29 and 12 plus eight rebounds.

Meanwhile, Rhys Vague and the Stirling Senators picked up two wins, with the Wildcats youngster draining 19 points and 14 points over the weekend.
