THREE potential first-round picks might be ineligible for the upcoming PBA draft because of their lack of required documents.
Jason Brickman, Jeremiah Grey and Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser, all of whom are standouts of the Asean Basketball League team Alab Pilipinas, are likely to be barred from joining this year’s PBA draft since they have yet to get required papers for Filipino-foreign players from the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Immigration.
This was revealed by their agent, Charlie Dy, who appeared in the “Power & Play” program of former PBA commissioner Noli Eala.
“I got a message the other day saying that they’re not eligible until they submit those requirements,” said Dy.
The deadline for the documents is still on March 9, but Dy revealed that the three are having a hard time getting flights out of the United States and into the country because of the global health crisis.
“Actually, they won’t be able to make it with the (Covid-19)pandemic. They can’t even fly in. So they have to wait for next year,” added Dy.
The three players are high on the list of PBA teams with their experience playing for Alab Pilipinas. Brickman and Grey have also played for the Mighty Sports Philippines squad that topped both the William Jones Cup in Taiwan and the Dubai Invitational Basketball Tournament. (JNP)
