Two-day PBA Draft Combine starts Monday
Bluechip recruits Christian Standhardinger and Kiefer Ravena are expected to go 1-2 in the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft.
But for the rest of the field, they can have a chance to boost their stocks and move up the board as they try to impress coaches and scouts in the 2017 PBA Draft Combine set on Monday and Tuesday at Gatorade Hoops Center.
All 44 applicants are expected to show up as part of their requirement to proceed to the final list.
Anthropometry and other performance and skills tests will be gauged in day one, while the neophytes will be divided to six teams, composed of seven to eight players, in a mini-tournament scheduled in day two.
Coaches and scouts from all 12 teams are expected to show up and evaluate the talents in the two-day event to see who they deem picking come draft day.
The 2017 PBA Rookie Draft is set on October 29 at Robinsons Place Manila.
