    Jeremiah Gray could join Terrafirma in the Commissioner's Cup.

    BRANDON Rosser was taken first overall by Blackwater, as expected, and injured Jeremiah Gray picked second by Terrafirma didn’t come as a huge surprise either in the PBA Draft on Sunday at the Robinsons Place in Manila.

    Gray is in the US undergoing rehab after ACL surgery and the earliest he could suit up is the mid-season Commissioner’s Cup, but Terrafirma is confident it made the right choice.

    "Alam naman namin yung risk. Actually ilang months na rin naman siyang naka-rest so willing to wait kami talaga."

    Converge picked Jeo Ambohot and No. 3 and Justin Arana at No. 4. Rain or Shine took Gian Mamuyac at fifth followed by JM Calma to NorthPort, Tyrus Hill to NLEX, Javi Gomez de Liano to Ginebra, Kurt Lojera to Blackwater, Shaun Ildefonso to Rain or Shine, Mark Dyke to Blackwater and Keith Zaldivar to Magnolia.
