    well, castro was not really that good of a shooter during his college and his early days in the pba. he is just a good slasher. after playing a good amount of international games, he is now a deadly 3pt shooter. so it is not too late for thirdy to develop his perimeter shooting.

    He has transferred to Letran and he is their starting Center churning double doubles... Not undersized as per Philippine standard, stands around 6-6/6-7, as big as Belga but quick enougj to defend PNR... He is just around 21-22 year old range also... He will have a PBA career probably similar projection to that of Banjo Calpito or if he develop his outside shooting Beau Belga type career..

    He's listed as 6'5 and is already 24. Moving to Letran is a good move since it's one of the few schools which doesn't have any FSA.

    I think he is much taller than 6-5 although he is indeed 24.

    Correct.

    We have seen PBA players who had developed their outside/3-pt. shooting during the middle or late part of their careers. Examples are Alvin Patrimonio, Nick Belasco, Chris Ross, Willie Miller & as you've mentioned Jayson Castro. Even CJ Perez whose 3-pt. shooting in the collegiate ranks was suspect has been improving his 3-pt. shooting so far in the PBA. Kiefer Ravena likewise whose 3-pt. shooting was also suspect during his amateur career has also improved it since his entry in the PBA.

    But of course, not becoz these players I've mentioned were able to developed their outside shooting only during their stint in the PBA doesn't mean that a Thirdy Ravena, whose 3-pt. shooting in the amateur ranks is suspect, will be able to develop it in the same manner as Patrimonio, Castro, Miller & Belasco did. There's no guarantee.

    CTG pays handsome money to 3x3 guys

    From Twitter

    PBA insider

    Fil-Americans Troy Rike and Franky Johnson have decided to withdraw from the 2019 PBA Rookie Draft to continue with their 3x3 Olympic quest.

    I dont know how accurate that PBA insider guy is but he makes sense with the 3x3 guys. That being said why are 5 of them out? Isnt a 3x3 roster four deep?

    Raymar Jose then? Maybe if he goes under Guiao he develops into something, Guiao is a miracle worker when it comes to big men

    Exclamation

    The biggest reason of Joshua Munzon, Alvin Pasaol, Leonard Santillan, Troy Rike and Franky Johnson for not joining the next PBA Draft is the chance to play in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. READ MORE

    Who decides who represents us, if ever? What's the assurance they'd get to represent and not PBA players a la SEAG?
    Never look too far ahead. You might stumble on a block right in front of you.

    Good if that's the case. I really feel for these guys, yung pakiramdam na ikaw nagtanim, iba ang aani. Personally, I don't buy their reason (Olympic quest) for skipping this draft. I think it's a combination of being paid at par (maybe more) with a rookie scale PBA contract and as a form of revolt for being deprived of the opportunity to represent our country in the SEAG. I know it is "just" the SEA Games but that feeling of being bypassed, snubbed, you know.... There's a reason why Statham reacted the way he did, to the point of calling out the PBA players in the 3x3 pool.

    yeah, it’s more of being paid handsomely by CTG with the combination of olympic dream.. next year will be the year 2 of CTG 3x3 program..
