B-Meg picks Pong Escobal in Dispersal Draft

Only two teams joined the Barako Bull Dispersal Draft as B-Meg Derby Ace chose Pong Escobal and San Miguel Beermen picked Lordy Tugade. Smart Gilas will replace Barako Bull in the PBA 2nd Conference which starts Feb 18.

Pong Escobal is a 5’11” Guard who played for Talk N Text, Sta. Lucia Realtors, Meralco Bolts and Barako Bull. Escobal will be the 4th Point Guard on Jorge Gallent’s rotation along with Roger Yap, Jonas Villanueva and Chris Timberlake.

Petron gives up 2010 1st Pick for 2012 Pick

Petron (former Derby Ace/Purefoods) gives up its 2010 1st round Draft Pick in the upcoming PBA Rookie Draft to Air 21 Express in exchange for the 2012 1st Round Draft Pick. This means Petron will have no Draft Pick in the 2010 PBA Rookie Draft (unless they trade some players for a draft pick) since Air 21 also has their 1st round and 2nd round draft picks from the Marc Pingris trade.

Although there were no reason given by Petron management why they gave back the 2010 1st pick to Air 21, maybe because they are stockpiling draft picks for the future since their current players are not that young anymore and also in preparation for 2012 where some Smart Gilas players will enter the PBA draft.

The 2010 PBA Rookie Draft will be held on August 29 at Market! Market in The Fort.
