Top pick CJ Perez ready to give cellar-dweller Columbian a lift

MANILA, Philippines---Top overall pick CJ Perez knows he's not a cure-all for Columbian in the coming PBA season and it needs a whole team's effort to change the culture of a franchise.

"I can't confirm it," said Guiao in a text message to INQUIRER.net Sunday. Guiao, however, said that he has options with Desiderio since the University of the Philippines alum is a valuable asset for his team and also a hoot commodity for any team. "You cannot go wrong with Paul and if we did not choose him at No. 4 then somebody will choose him close to that so it served a double purpose," said Guaio after the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft at Robinson's Manila. ...Keep on reading: Yeng Guiao ‘can’t confirm’ Poy Erram trade to NLEX yet.....»»

The PBA takes one last break in the ongoing Governors’ Cup to make way for the 2018 Draft. 48 applicants have made themselves available for all 12 PBA teams this year and for some of them, perhaps even all of them, the dream will come true Sunday.
