    2013 PBA Draft

    Last year's PBA draft was leading by great ballers such as Fajardo and Abueva..

    Now, in this year's annual event, who will top on the list??
    Any teams who will possibly be in the upper echelon of lottery picks?? You can post it here.

    Here's my Top 3 rookies in terms of skills
    1. Ray Parks
    2. Greg Slaughter
    3. Ian Sangalang

    But it still depends on the drafting team which to prefer: necessity or available talent

  5. #5
    which teams bah ang may highest possibilities na makakuha sa top 3 picks?

  6. #6
    yung pick ng global port na nasa san mig mgayon at pick ng barako na nasa ros ngayon

    maganda standing ng air21 kaya malabo maka #1 or #2 yun sa lottery pick, btw nasa ginebra pick ng air21

    Rookie Blue

    Is Ray Parks even eligible to take part in this year's PBA Rookie Draft? The UAAP has this "Don Allado rule" wherein a UAAP player can't be drafted by a PBA team in the same year. So a player who wants to play in the UAAP this year cannot take part in August's draft. Those who want to play one more year in the UAAP will have to wait for next year's draft. I'm not sure, though, if this rule is still applicable at present.

    Parks will not play this June so he can join the November draft...

    ^ If that's the case then it makes this year's PBA Rookie Draft really interesting.

    If Parks won't suit up for NU for the UAAP season as what FH cited, then lock him up in the PBA rookie draft this November.

    However, if he gets to suit up, there might be a chance that he'll still be drafted. Note that the PBA Rookie Draft normally happens on an August, or midway into the UAAP season. The application for the PBA Draft normally ends sometime July so UAAP players simply won't be allowed to suit up for their schools once they join the draft. Unlike the NCAA whose rules are more relaxed.

    But the difference now is significant. The UAAP basketball season is expected to end mid-October as scheduled and the PBA rookie draft happens on a November. The PBA can take into consideration the UAAP's rule and extend the rookie application for the draft immediately after the UAAP basketball season. By then, Parks won't be obligated anymore to suit up for NU for this season.

    My best guess is that Parks will still play for NU this season and then will be allowed to join the PBA Draft. The best of both worlds for him. Parks can't afford not to play for NU at this time - especially with his dad ailing. The elder Parks may be supported financially by the RSA Group because of his past affiliation with the San Miguel Beer team in the ABL (a job he had to give up because of his cancer condition) but the younger Parks would need to earn a living for himself as well.

    Ray Parks would find this setup ideal for him. He will continue to receive the allowance he's entitled to from the Sy family while playing for NU in the UAAP. Immediately after, he gets to be drafted at least in the Top 3 of the next rookie draft, earn the maximum salary to be received by a rookie (P150k for the first yr, P225k for the second yr, P337.5k for the third yr) plus perks.

    ^and SMC could pressure him to join the draft since both sanmig & ginebra could get the top overall pick... Bayad nya na rin yun sa SMC for taking care of his father...

    Correct. Ray Parks' decision will come as soon as the lottery is over.

    Note that this was the issue taken against the PBA last season. I've always felt that the deadline for application for the PBA Draft should come ahead over the lottery. It doesn't bode well for a potential draftee to turn his back to playing in the PBA if he finds out which team will have first crack at him. The list of applicants should be finalized first before the lottery to give an opportunity for the poorest performing team of the previous season to draft the potential best player of the draft.

    Last year, Junmar Fajardo didn't apply for the draft until Air 21 won the lottery. Since Petron owned the Express' first round pick, and since Fajardo wanted only to play for the Boosters, the 6'10 center waited until Petron had the sure top pick. Had it been the reverse, Fajardo, or any top blue chipper would have joined the PBA draft unknowing of what team will get him. Instead, the player gets control of what team he will play for.

    At present, the draft order would most likely be this:

    1. San Mig Coffee - getting the rights to Global's first round pick
    2. Rain Or Shine - getting the rights to Barako's first round pick
    3. Ginebra - getting the rights to Air 21's first round pick

    If Parks, Greg Slaughter and Ian Sangalang all join the draft next year, these three would be a lock. My best guess is that Parks would be taken in by San Mig, Slaughter by Ginebra and Sangalang by ROS.

    Since Ray Parks would most likely be picked by an SMC team and possibly this year's #1, mostly likely Greg would be picked #2.

    Most people would pick "popular" names in the draft which includes Sangalang and Pascual, but I'd go for the underrated players. If Petron has picks this year, I would like them to pick Camus and Fortuna. It's not because they're from UST, but they will be underrated compared to the other names on the list.

    Imagine energy guys Tubid and Camus playing side by side, I'd say we'd have a combo that can out hustle Abueva of Alaska. And Fortuna would be a real PG, and would not resort to hero-ball.

    Camus would be great for Petron. I was actually pushing for Petron to draft him last year only to find out that he wasn't entering the draft. Fortuna, I have my doubts. He's good no doubt but he might be a liability defensively. I also think he would be drafted in the first round so if I was Petron, I'd rather go for Camus. We could be looking at Hodge 2.0 only with less fanfare. Is he applying for the draft this year? Why isn't he playing in any league (ABL/PBADL)?

    Oh yeah! Thanks sammael. He's not averaging a lot of minutes tho. I know he wasn't able to suit last conference since he couldn't get his papers in order. Probably him being away from basketball is the reason why he isn't averaging a lot of minutes.

    Thanks for the clarification Jay, I forgot that the schedules of the PBA, UAAP and NCAA have been adjusted because of the FIBA-Asia Championships.

    1. San Mig Coffee - getting the rights to Global's first round pick
    2. Rain Or Shine - getting the rights to Barako's first round pick
    3. Ginebra - getting the rights to Air 21's first round pick

    -- from sir JPM's post


    If above will not change, Meralco may target ROS' pick. Then Meralco may end up with either Parks (talent) or Slaughter (necessity). Mahirap lagpasan ng San Mig si Parks

    Btw, Bobby Parks Sr was San Mig Beermen's head coach in Asean Basketball League

    That's possible. But who can you suggest that Meralco give up to ROS for the latter's first round pick which may be as high as #1 and possibly as low as #3? Note that ROS has the same problem as Meralco - the lack of an imposing big man with a post up game.

    But it should be an interesting prospect indeed if ever.

    Lets not forget that Parks and family is being taken care by NU as well.

    Earliest Parks can leave is next year (if residency is counted).

    Slaughter also has a two year contract with the Gilas cadet. 2014 is the earliest.
