Compton looking for player who can match up with Fajardo, Slaughter

Alaska coach Alex Compton knows that with his team picking fifth in the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft, he has no choice but to wait for the proceedings to pan out.

“This draft already has its top five players and I don’t think there’s a lot of surprises for us. I think there’s some good talent in the draft, so we’ll just have to wait,” he said.

Christian Standhardinger and Kiefer Ravena are the consensus 1-2 picks in the annual rookie selection, which leaves bluechip recruits Jeron Teng, Raymar Jose, and Jason Perkins for picks three to five, the last of those expectedly being the Aces’ man.

Compton knows that he can’t go wrong with any of those five as he maintains the mentality of picking the best talent available at their spot.

However, with Alaska desperate to get back to contending for titles, the American mentor said that getting a frontcourt player that can compete with the likes of June Mar Fajardo and Greg Slaughter should be of high priority for teams who want to win a championship.
