MANILA, Philippines—Making good on its promise, Blackwater on Sunday went for 3×3 standout Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser for its first overall pick in the annual PBA Rookie Draft.
In Rosser, the Bossing gain a decent rim protector who also shoots the basketball well from inside and out—just exactly what head coach Ariel Vanguardia wanted.
The Filipino-American forward, who stands 6-foot-7, is the brother of TNT defensive ace Matt, and has also suited up for San Miguel Alab Pilipinas before blossoming into a star in the PBA’s 3×3 circuit.
He is currently in Saigon, Vietnam, fresh from helping Gilas 3×3 to a bronze medal.
Blackwater also has the 9th pick in the first round, along with the 1st pick of the second round.
