Fil-foreign applicants in the coming PBA Draft with incomplete documents have until Friday to submit their certification from the Bureau of Immigration and recognition from the Department of Justice to be declared as official candidates in the annual draft exercise slated March 14.
As it is, all is set for what could well be the biggest, deepest PBA draft in years.
Joshua Munzon and Alvin Pasaol are among the brightest bets even as Jordan Heading, Jaydee Tungcab, Tzaddy Rangel and William Navarro are four players to be involved in the special Gilas draft.
Even after their PBA drafting, Munzon and Pasaol will be allowed to keep their commitment with the Gilas 3x3 team competing in the Olympic qualifying tournament in Graz, Austria in May. Completing the Phl cast are PBA veterans Moala Tautuaa and CJ Perez.
Other possible early picks are Jamie Malonzo, Troy Rike, Frank Johnson, Larry Muyang, Santi Santillan, James Laput and Andrei Caracut.
The Columbian Autocar Corp. franchise holds the rights for the first pick. The Dyip will be followed by NorthPort and then NLEX by virtue of a past trade deal with Blackwater.(SB)
