Cotton has had two shots at the NBA this season, once with the Utah Jazz where he played in 15 games at the end of his rookie season, averaging 18 points and 3.4 assists per game before being waived before the start of this season.   In November 2015 he was signed by the Phoenix Suns where he played in three games, averaging 4.4 point and 3.3 assists.  He was waived by the Suns in January.

Ray McCallum's second ten-day contract expired today, with him appearing in ten games and averaging 6.9 points and 2.7 assists per game, but was a career high 39% from 3pt.
