Standhardinger says he will be at PBA Draft after missing combine
After skipping the Draft Combine on Monday, Christian Standhardinger assured that he will attend the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft on Sunday.
The Fil-German big man shared that he had already notified the league of his absence in the mandatory combine weeks ahead due to his commitments with his ABL team Hong Kong.
“Hi guys, Everything is good! It is understood that I am officially under contract in Hong Kong, so I could not be at the PBA Draft Combine,” Standhardinger posted on his Twitter account.
“My agent has already informed PBA officials in advance. Looking forward to seeing you all at Draft Day!” he wrote.
Standhardinger, who is projected to be this year’s top overall pick, is currently in Hong Kong practicing with the Long Lions.
The draft will take place at Robinsons Place Manila.
