Tanduay coach Lawrence Chongson anticipated that somehow, Jason Brickman will fall into his lap.

And the Fil-Am guard did, as the Rhum Masters plucked the former ABL standout in the fourth round in the 2016 PBA D-League Draft on Tuesday.

Chongson sees the selection as a gamble, with Brickman’s commitment still uncertain this conference.

“Fifty-fifty. I’m not surprised some teams are scared of complications with his papers. But what surprised me is that no one tried to gamble on him,” he said.

“I picked him at the fourth round, so it’s harmless.”

Still, Chongson hopes that the gamble will bear fruit for the Rhum Masters.

Regardless of what Brickman and Tanduay will agree upon, he sees the former Finals MVP for Westports Malaysia Dragons as a sleeper pick.

“It’s like getting a gift on Christmas day. If in the next day, his papers arrive then I’ll get ‘pogi points’ from my boss.”
