The Fil-American guard informed SLAM PH that he planned to stay in the UAAP and was in the process of looking for a new team to play for.
After a couple of months of searching, it seems like he has found a new home in Taft.
Bartlett announced on his Twitter account that he will be resuming his UAAP career with the La Salle Green Archers.
After a lot of prayer, consideration and workouts with several teams, I am proud and blessed to announce that I will continue my UAAP career with the De La Salle Green Archers. Thank you all for the love and support during my transition. ???????? #SZN82 pic.twitter.com/cqlsjToUSl

Bartlett mentioned that he worked out for several teams but ultimately decided to play for the Green Archers. He will serve a one-year residency period before he can suit up for La Salle.
This transfer is the first big move of the Green Archers since coach Louie Gonzales took over as the head coach for Coach Aldin Ayo. This is also a bit of good news for the program that faced turmoil to start the year with the Rivero brothers and Brent Paraiso.
Bartlett joins a loaded back court that already boasts young, talented guards like Aljun Melecio, Andrei Caracut and Jollo Go. Bartlett is an aggressive guard that uses his speed and athleticism on both ends of the floor. Ironically, Bartlett’s best game in Season 80 was against the Green Archers. He torched La Salle for 23 points.
