AFTER leading their respective collegiate sides to championships, La Salle’s Jeron Teng and San Beda’s Davon Potts take one step closer in their dreams of turning pro as they led the list of applicants for the 2016 PBA D-League Draft.
The bluechip wingers banner the 128-man pool as they hope to be picked on Dec. 20 at PBA Cafe in Metrowalk, Pasig City.
Of the list, 113 are local while 15 are Fil-foreign applicants.
Also throwing their hat in the pool are San Beda standout Robert Bolick, Far Eastern University playmaker Monbert Arong, Letran big man Jom Sollano, and Southwestern University guard Mac Tallo.
Ten teams will participate in the 2017 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup, set to open on Jan. 19 next year.
Without Phoenix defending its title, it will be an interesting race to the plum, with runners-up Cafe France and Tanduay emerging as early favorites.
Also joining this conference are Racal, AMA Online Education, Blustar Malaysia, returnees Wangs Basketball and Jose Rizal University, and newcomers Cignal, Province of Batangas, and Manuel L. Quezon University.
