Winston, a 6-foot-4 guard, played for two years at De La Salle University.

Meanwhile, BJ Andrade still ended up as a first round pick.

The heady 6-foot guard out of Ateneo de Manila University was selected as the 10th overall pick in the 2023 PBA Rookie Draft by Converge.

Promising is Andrade as he was the lead shooting guard of the Blue Eagles during its championship run back in UAAP Season 85.

He put up numbers of 9.06 points, 2.61 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in his senior year.

However, on February 21, 2023, Andrade tore his left ACL during a game pitting Pampanga Royce Hotel and Davao Occidental-Cocolife in the Pilipinas Super League.

Andrade is set to make a full recovery come January.
