PBA Draft: Terrafirma makes right pick, selects Stephen Holt as top overall pick

Although Terrafirma dropped hints that it was in need of a big player, they couldn’t pass up on Stephen Holt.

The Dyip chose Holt as the first overall pick in the 2023 PBA Rookie Draft, which took place on Sunday at Market! Market! in Taguig City.

Holt, the oldest prospect in the draft at 31 years old, emerged as the consensus top pick among experts and pundits when he threw his name into the draft just a couple of weeks ago.

This is largely due to his wealth of experience.

After going undrafted in the 2014 NBA Draft, the 6-foot-4 guard from Portland, Oregon, spent one season with Canton in the G League while also testing his skills in the NBA Summer League with Atlanta.

He then had stints with teams in Melbourne, Andorra, Zaragoza, Nymburk, Brisbane, Ostrów Wielkopolski, Astana, Koper, and Oradea.

Holt was named to the All-NBL second team in 2016 before becoming a champion in the Czech League a year later.

Holt now becomes the fourth player selected as the first overall pick by the Dyip franchise in the last five years.
