KIB Montalbo has joined the early list of former college basketball cagers who have applied for the PBA Rookie Draft.
The former La Salle standout has filed his application for the draft, according to sources, a year after playing his final season in the UAAP as the Green Archers' team captain.
Montalbo is currently playing for the Makati Super Crunch in the MPBL.
The Bacolod native has made a name for himself as a defensive lynchpin, with his defense helping La Salle win the 2017 UAAP crown.
In the MPBL, Montalbo is also one of the leading defenders, averaging 1.8 steals through 18 games with the Super Crunch.
The deadline of submission for all players – local and Fil-foreign – applying for the PBA draft is on November 29.
