    Potential Alaska buyers

    Three companies have inquired about joining the PBA in the wake of Alaska’s decision to disband following the season.

    Commissioner Willie Marcial confirmed the development, although declining to reveal the identities of the companies as per their request.

    “Hihintayin lang namin kung ano ang gagawin ng Alaska. Bibigyan natin hanggang April. Baka may makuha silang interesado," Marcial said. "Kung hindi, mapupunta na sa atin (ang franchise)."

    Any company that wants to enter the PBA will need to go through a rigid process, including due diligence of its financial capability. The company also needs a two-thirds vote from the board in order to get in.

    “Ayoko kase yung ginagawa nila na parang palitan. Halimbawa two games sa scrim, parang nakakabitin. Nakakabitin maglaro kapag two games sa scrim tapos papalitan kaagad ako,” he said .
