Crucial PBA meeting
THE PBA will discuss next week its next steps in the season when the board of governors convenes next week.
The Governors’ Cup was paused due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in the country. The last playdate was Dec. 26.
Marcial said Games and Amusements Board chairman Baham Mitra has already issued an endorsement to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the PBA to continue the season through a home-venue-home set-up.
PBA Draft delay
PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial said once the adjustment in the schedule of the import-laden conference is made owing to the repeated delays, the league's other activities including the 2021 draft will be pushed back as well.
Originally set in March, the rookie draft could be pushed back to late April or early May.
So far, no amateur players have openly declared for the draft, although Marcial said a lot of inquiries had already been made to his office.
Last year, the draft was held March 14 under a first ever virtual setup due to the pandemic.
