2013 PBA Rookie Draft Schedules

PBA Rookies
For those who are planning to apply in the next PBA Rookie Draft, you have a month to complete your papers. Both local and Fil-foreign hopefuls need to submit all the requirements during that period in order to become eligible for the 3 November 2013 event.

Owing to the complexity of their papers and documents, Fil-foreign players looking to join the Draft proceedings are given until 12 September to submit their application and requirements. The league will then have five days to review the documents, after which it will issue the preliminary list of prospective draftees for submission to member teams.

A month-long contestability period will then commence and will end on 17 October 2013. Contestability period refers to the time during which the validity of the documents may be challenged.

Local born applicants meanwhile, have until 18 October to submit their papers. On that day, the league will likewise issue the final list of eligible Fil-foreign hopefuls.

Six days prior to the Draft or on 28 October, all rookie applicants undergo the traditional biometrics where their physical features and strengths will be measured individually.

On 30 October, the final list of candidates for the 2013 Rookie Draft will be issued by the Commissioner’s Office.

With the season-ending Governors Cup still to reel off on 14 August, none among the biggest names in the collegiate and amateur ranks have yet to declare themselves available for the Draft, although there are already those being anticipated to turn pro by next year such as Greg Slaughter, Ian Sangalang, Nico Salva, Justine Chua, RR Garcia, Jeron Teng and Jett Vidal.

Big man JuneMar Fajardo of Petron emerged as the top rookie pick in last year's Draft followed by Calvin Abueva (Alaska), Alex Mallari (Petron now with San Mig Coffee), Cliff Hodge (Meralco), and Aldrich Ramos (Barako Bull now with Alaska).
