23 draftees not given tender offers by PBA teams

Twenty-three out of the 61 drafted players in the 2021 Rookie Draft were let go to the Philippine Basketball Association’s free agents list. 

NorthPort, which drafted 10 players, did not keep the rights to Loren Brill, Marvin Moraga, Carl Ravanes, Seraj Elmejrab, Jonico Rosales, and Jonathan Mendoza.

Blackwater, on the other hand, retained the rights to Jun Manzo while letting go of Kimlee Bayquin and Jeson Delfinado. Both are former players of head coach Nash Racela in Far Eastern University.

As reported, NLEX did not sign Junjun Bonsubre, Joe Presbitero, Joseph Alcantara, and Alberto Torres.

Rain or Shine has opted to keep the rights to RJ Argamino while not for Philip Manalang. Magnolia has parted ways with Chito Victolero’s former Mapua player Andoy Estrella.

Loren’s brother Luis III was not picked up by Meralco, together with John Yasa.

TNT also let go of Joel Lee Yu and Martin Gozum.

San Miguel will not sign Luis Abaca, a varsity player from College of Saint Benilde.

Finally, Terrafirma sent Dhon Reverente, Jay Javelosa, Immanuel Custodio, and Terrence Tumalip to free agency.

The league has given teams a window to just offer tenders to the draft picks due to the lockdown in Manila.
