Special draft set for Gilas cadets; No trade allowed for 2 years

October 20, 2016

A special draft for the players included in the Gilas program will be held to pave the way for their entry into the PBA.

In a joint presser Wednesday during halftime of the PBA Finals Game 6, Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas president Al Panlilio and members of the PBA board led by Commissioner Chito Narvasa announced the agreement between two basketball bodies.

“The PBA has shown its commitment to the SBP and its support for the Gilas program,” said Panlilio. “There is full commitment from the two institutions.”

The 12 PBA teams will have a chance to pick one player from the Gilas pool but no teams will be able to trade or drop their draftee for two years after being selected....

Photo courtesy of the PBA Media BureauMANILA, Philippines – Star veteran Marc Pingris has no doubts that Paul Lee will be a good fit for the Star Hotshots as the franchise looks to return to contention in the post-James Yap era.

Yap, who for 12 years was the face of the Purefoods franchise, was sent to Rain or Shine in exchange for Lee last week, in a trade that changed the landscape of the PBA.

Pingris has not denied that he is saddened to see Yap leave, especially as for a time they believed that they would both retire with Star along with PJ Simon. The three players had formed the core of the team that brought Purefoods to great success, including a Grand Slam....

Victolero took over for Jason Webb, who was unable to draw inspired play from the Hotshots especially during the Governors' Cup when the team slumped to a 2-9 win-loss record.

A former coach of Mahindra, Victolero will have only five weeks to install his system into the team but is optimistic that the veteran Hotshots will have no trouble adjusting quickly....

For Pingris, losing Yap 'like breaking up with your girlfriend'

October 19, 2016

MANILA, Philippines – Having spent the bulk of their PBA careers together, Star Hotshots forward Marc Pingris was admittedly shocked and saddened when longtime teammate James Yap was traded to the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters.

Pingris and Yap, along with PJ Simon, formed the core of the Purefoods franchise that experienced remarkable highs – at one point they won four consecutive titles – as well as demoralizing lows.

That era ended last week, when Yap, a two-time PBA MVP, was sent to Rain or Shine in exchange for Paul Lee....
