The previous (2013) summer he played at Trotamundos (LPB) in Venezuelan league. In 5 games he averaged 5.2ppg, 1.8rpg, 3.0apg and 2.4spg in 2013 season. The last (2013) season Petty played at CSS Giurgiu (Division A) in Romanian league. In 38 games he was the best scorer with impressive 20.8ppg and had 6.4rpg, 4.9apg and 2.1spg (in top 2) in 2012-13 season. Great year indeed as he was voted to Eurobasket.com Romanian League All-Imports Team, 2nd Team and to the All-Star Game.
In 2011-12 season he played at Central Illinois Drive in U.S. semi-pro league IBA-PBL. In 22 games he averaged remarkable 17.0ppg, 6.2rpg and 4.7apg (top 5) in 2011-12 season.

Worth to mention he played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him to get the job in pro basketball.
He attended University of Texas-Pan American until 2011 and it is his fourth season in pro basketball.
The scouts decsribe him following way: 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
