The last (2012/13) season Petty played at CSS Giurgiu (Division A) in Romanian league. In 38 games he was the best scorer with impressive 20.8ppg and recorded 6.4rpg, 4.9apg and 2.1spg (in top 2). He can count that season as a very successful as was selected to Romanian League All-Imports Team, 2nd Team and to the All-Star Game. The most of previous (11-12) season he spent at Central Illinois Drive in U.S. semi-pro league IBA-PBL. In 22 games he had very remarkable stats: 17.0ppg, 6.2rpg and 4.7apg (top 5).

He has played previously professionally in IBA-PBL (Cent.Illinois D.) and D-League (Reno Bighorns).
Petty attended previously one of camps at Eurobasket Summer League on his way to pro basketball.
He attended University of Texas-Pan American until 2011 and it will be his third season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into Petty's outlook: Perry is a Point Guard that can control the tempo of a game and creates problems with his shooting ability on the offensive end of the floor. He is a very aggressive defender and is able to guard positions from the 1 or 2. Great rebounder for his position and is able to be very effective in the pick and roll set.
Perry about himself:
I’m humble, carefree and a kindhearted person. I enjoy joking around and making people laugh. Nothing bothers me besides losing. I work hard and expect to be the best. I love spending time with friends and family. I like challenges, accomplishing things people say i can’t
