JOSHUA Munzon is still uncertain on whether he will play in the Asean Basketball League (ABL) this season, admitting he is looking at the PBA D-League as an option.

The Fil-American guard said he has yet to sign with any team in the ABL with the regional league's new season just a month away from its November 17 opening.

"At the moment, I'm still unsure of what I'm going to do," said Munzon in an online interview with SPIN.ph. "I've been talking to some ABL teams but I could be playing in the PBA D-League, too."

In order to play in the PBA D-League, Munzon must apply for the PBA D-League draft. Suiting up in the developmental league is also a requirement for Fil-foreigners hoping to be eligible to play in the PBA.

The 6-foot-3 Munzon played for the Saigon Heat and the Westports Malaysia Dragons last season in the ABL after suiting up for Cal State Los Angeles in the United States.

The 22-year-old Munzon is a defensive specialist who led the ABL in steals with an average of 3.2 a game. He also posted averages of 19.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 4.1 assissts last season.

Following his ABL stint, Munzon showcased his firepower as he led the Thailand Basketball League in scoring this year while playing for club team PEA.

"(I'm) still trying to decide," Munzon added, referring to his future plans.
