FIL-FOREIGN prospects Jason Brickman and Joshua Munzon already have their sights set on entering the next PBA Rookie Draft.
But Lawrence Domingo feels the time is still not right.
The 6-foot-5 forward bared that the PBA is still far from his mind as he focuses on San Miguel Alab Pilipinas' quest for back-to-back championships in the Asean Basketball League (ABL).
"I think that would be great if they make it to the PBA. I think everybody's been kind of waiting for them to go there," Domingo said of Brickman and Munzon.
"As far as I go, I'm real focused on Alab. We got a good thing going on right here."
Domingo has spent his last three years with Alab, honing his skills and establishing himself as a reliable two-way option as he averaged 6.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in 18.8 minutes in 13 games for the league-leading club.
The 25-year-old admitted that the PBA is still part of his plans in the future, but he's shelving that thought as he opts to continue his career in the regional league and wait for two more years when he's already 28 years old, where he can apply for the draft without playing in the PBA D-League.
"As of recent, I've been thinking about it, but I'll stay in the ABL for two more years. But again, it depends on the situation. I feel it will be great if I make it to the PBA, but there's still a lot of things that I need to take in consideration. As of right now, I don't try to think too far in the future. I'd like to focus on the now, what me and the team is going on right now," he said.
Domingo turns 26 in April.
"The PBA, when I have time to worry about that, that's when I'll deal with it. The PBA is definitely in the future, but for me, it's still in the works."
