PBA 2016 Draft Order Is Set

Blackwater Elite
After struggling to make a splash in the past conference, Blackwater gets the top pick in the 2016 PBA Rookie Draft.

The Elite advanced for the first time in the playoffs after making it to the quarterfinals in the Philippine Cup, but could not recapture their thunder in the import-laden conferences behind the leadership of Carlo Lastimosa and rookie Art dela Cruz.

Phoenix, meanwhile, will be selecting second, getting the rights of the pick from Star.

Ginebra can also add another star to its already loaded rotation with the third pick, receiving the slot from a prior trade with Phoenix.

Mahindra will be picking fourth, followed by Star at five. San Miguel is next at sixth, followed by Meralco, NLEX, Rain or Shine, Ginebra again, Alaska, and Phoenix to end the first round.

Here's how the draft order will play out:
