Ravena on joining PBA Draft: Only thing left to be done is pass application form

TAIPEI – With the way he talked on Friday night, Kiefer Ravena is in his final tours of duty with Gilas Pilipinas – three tournaments at the most until the end of August – before he comes back as a National player later on as a professional.

“As far as I’m concerned, the only thing left to be done is pass my application form for the (PBA) Draft,” Ravena said before Gilas practice as the Filipinos prepare to slug it out with title favorite Canada 150 at the start of the 39th Jones Cup Invitational in this thriving island.

“There are just some people who would need to know of my decision,” the former UAAP MVP with Ateneo added.

Without a doubt the most decorated amateur in the land today, Ravena will definitely be the No. 1 pick when the rookie proceedings are held sometime in October – unless someone of greater skill and size comes along, which is quite hard to fathom at the moment while looking at the talent in the local collegiate leagues.

“When is the (Draft application) deadline, by the way?” he even asked with a smile.

The 6-foot Ravena is dead set on playing at least two more international events before formalizing everything as he guns for a record no basketball player in the Philippines has ever held.
