Juan Gomez de Liano, Sean Manganti lead stacked D-League draft class


Big names are abound, as 153 players take one step closer to achieving their PBA dreams when they join the 2019 PBA D-League Draft on Tuesday.

University of the Philippines playmaker Juan Gomez de Liano and Adamson forward Sean Manganti headline the entrants for the annual rookie selection proceedings, as a prelude to what is shaping up to be an exciting 2019 PBA D-League season.

Aside from Gomez de Liano, also in the fray for possible backcourt selections are La Salle’s Kib Montalbo; Ateneo’s Anton Asistio; FEU’s Jasper Parker; San Beda’s AC Soberano; Arellano’s Ian Alban; JRU’s Jed Mendoza; and CEU’s Orlan Wamar.

Manganti, meanwhile, is joined by ASEAN Basketball League veteran Joshua Munzon, Clint Doliguez of San Beda, Dan Wong of Ateneo, and CESAFI MVP Rey Suerte of University of the Visayas in the winger positions.

La Salle big man Santi Santillan also lead the bigs available in the field, together with Mapua’s Warren Bonifacio and NU’s Troy Rike.

Twenty teams will line up to secure these rookies’ rights, with last season’s cellar-dweller AMA Online Education making the first pick out of the pool.

The 2019 PBA D-League season begins on February 14 at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
