The 48 PBA Rookie Draft hopefuls, led by bright prospects CJ Perez, Bobby Ray Parks, Robert Bolick and Abu Tratter, know their respective fates Sunday in the draft proceedings to start at 5 p.m. at Robinson’s Place Manila.
The excitement, however, is expected to start only from the No. 5 choice and onwards since it’s a foregone conclusion Perez, Parks, Bolick and Tratter will be the top four picks.
Columbian Dyip and Blackwater have long made known their intentions to make Perez and Parks as the first and second choices.
“Walang pagbabago, kay CJ Perez kami. Alam namin na hinog na hinog na siya, and he could provide us instant firepower,” said Columbian Dyip top official Bobby Rosales.
“In the second round, we’ll try to land a point guard kasi wala rin naman gaanong malaki sa pool,” Rosales also said.
Blackwater team owner Dioceldo Sy said they would take in the player Columbian Dyip will pass on between Perez and Parks.
