Alas set to join rookie draft

Kevin Alas

Former college star player Kevin Alas is still weighing his options whether to turn pro or not this year, but he said yesterday he’s leaning towards joining the 2014 PBA Rookie Draft.

“Probably 80 percent, I’ll decide tomorrow (today) on the final day of applying in the draft,” said the 22-year-old Alas.

Alas, the son one-time Letran College mentor and current Alaska assistant coach Louie Alas, said that there’s nothing that is holding him back but he just wants to be sure of his decision.

The young Alas said he is scheduled to meet with his family Tuesday night to possibly sort things out and “get advice” from my parents on what to do as far as his basketball career is concerned.

Alas said that his father is actually encouraging him to apply for the draft.

“He told me that I’m actually ready to play in the PBA,” said Alas. “I’ve won some awards in college and became MVP in the PBA D-League. So I’ve experienced all of these and he thinks I’m ready for the PBA.”

“Of course, it’s every Filipino players’ dream top play in the PBA. It’s also my dream… but for me, if I’m going to decide and join the draft, I want to be 100 percent with my decision,” said Alas. (Waylon Galvez)
