Manila, Philippines – For PBA rookie hopefuls, the big day is August 19 as the league holds the 2012 PBA Rookie Draft at Robinson’s Midtown Manila.
But first, they’ll have to note some important dates on their calendar.
The Commissioner’s Office has set July 6 as the deadline for Fil-foreign hopefuls to file their applications and submit all the documentary requirements. Homegrown
talents have until August 3 to turn in their applications.
July 10 is the last day of the issuance of preliminary list of prospective Fil-foreign draftees to the teams, which will also have the period of July 11 to Aug. 2 to contest the eligibility of any applicant.
Rookie applicants go through biometrics on Aug. 15, a day before the final list of candidates for the draft is released.
The league expects another good yield of young talents for the 2012-13 PBA season.
Last year, the PBA harvested a bumper crop in the Draft with former La Salle standout Jvee Casio emerging as the top pick.
Included in the talent-laden 2011 pool were other first-rounder draftees Paul Lee, Chris Lutz, Marcio Lassiter, Mark Barroca, Mac Baracael, Jason Ballesteros, Allein Maliksi, Reil Cervantes and Dylan Ababou.
