Five years after his collegiate career had ended, Bobby Ray Parks is finally ready for the big league as the 25-year-old threw his name to the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft, Thursday morning.
“At the PBA Office making it official.”
Parks though won’t just be any rookie.
After his collegiate career, Parks, a two-time UAAP Most Valuable Player, was able to win the PBA D-League’s MVP crown back in 2015.
During that same year, the 6-foot-4 guard tried to make it to the NBA by joining D-League squad Texas Legends.
The second-generation cager then went back home in 2016, joining Alab Pilipinas and winning the local MVP crown twice.
Parks is also a three-time SEA Games gold medalist.
