Thompson, meanwhile, had a meteoric rise last year, being named as the Most Valuable Player in the NCAA Season 90 after exemplary showing with the Perpetual Help Altas.

Vosotros is one of the most lethal sharp-shooters in this year’s Draft, as evidenced by his performances with the La Salle Green Archers in the UAAP and with the gold medal-winning Gilas cadets in the 2015 Southeast Asian Games.

The 2015 PBA Rookie Draft is on August 23 at Robinsons Ermita.
