Ben Adamos foregoes final year in Perps, to enter PBA Draft

Ben Adamos is set to move on to the next chapter of his life.

The 6-foot-6 stretch big man is foregoing his final year with University of Perpetual Help System DALTA to enter the 2021 PBA Rookie Draft.

“Unang una po sa lahat, Gusto ko pong mag pasalamat sa lahat ng binigay ninyong opportunity sa akin at na makapaglaro para sa Perpetual,” he said.

“Pinag desisyunan ko na po na i-take sa next level at sumali sa darating na draft sa PBA.”

Adamos, 24, only played one year in Perpetual. He averaged 11.6 points on 45.1-percent shooting from the field, 30.8-percent from downtown, alongside 8.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per contest.

Prior to Perpetual, he started his collegiate career with Technological Institute of the Philippines. He later played for San Beda from NCAA Seasons 92-93. Adamos averaged 4.03 points and 2.6 rebounds per game.

He also played for Bacolod-Master’s Sardines in the MPBL, norming 8.8 points and 7.2 rebounds per contest.

Though the decision was tough, it was necessary for Adamos. He wants to help out his parents who have been struggling during the on-going pandemic.

“Gusto ko po makatulong sa mga magulang at pamilya ko lalo na po na nasa Albay.

“Salamat sa opportunidad binigay ninyo sa akin para gumaling marami po ako natutunan at salamat at naging pangalawang tahanan ang eskwelahan na ito,” he said.

To help in his transition to the pros, Adamos has signed with agent Ed Ponceja.
