Jeremy Evans, Bryce Cotton and Ronnie Price

Rounding out the back end of my squad was as difficult as leaving Stockton on the bench. There were just so many good options for the squad. In the end, I decided to skew “younger” to balance out my veteran starting five.

Jeremy Evans still has hops for days and actually spent time in the Association last year with the Atlanta Hawks. He would probably be the best overall athlete and most impressive leaper in all of the BIG3 and could play in the paint or on the perimeter.

Meanwhile, Aussie MVP Bryce Cotton and journeyman guard Ronnie Price would provide energy and a bulldog mentality in the backcourt. They’d also join Evans and AK in punishing the rim.

I, for one, would definitely fork over some scratch to see Price recreate this pre-Jazz moment with Boozer —

Cotton is a little younger than the typical BIG3 athlete, but his game would jump off the floor in the 3-on-3 setting.
