    “We would like to inform everyone that the deadline for submission of draft applications is tomorrow September 22, 5:00pm. We were compelled to make this decision due to the heavy turnout of applications,” said the league in a statement.

    The WNBL has implemented a draft system for its first season as a professional league which is targeting a January opening.

    A draft combine is also slated to be held at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga before the actual draft scheduled next month.

    “We would like to apologize in advance for those who will not be able to make it to this year's draft. Next year, we will accommodate more players as more teams are expected to join the league,” said WNBL executive vice president Rhose Montreal.
