The NorthPort Batang Pier are already securing their draft picks deals for the upcoming 2020 PBA season.
Second round pick and former UST guard Renzo Subido already inked a one year deal while eighth overall pick Sean Manganti and third round pick Chris Dumapig are still in negotiation with the team but are already close to signing.
"I think si Subido nagsign na, si Manganti patapos na tsaka yung Dumapig yata patapos na sila," Northport head coach Pido Jarencio told reporters after their first Batang Pier practice this year.
The three players have been with the team since they got drafted in December and was there to witness Northport's improbable run in the playoffs. They survive two do-or-die games in the eliminations to book a ticket to the playoffs.
They then pulled off a major upset as the eight seeded team against the top seed Nlex Road Warriors in the Quarterfinals before setting up a date with the Gin King in the Semis.
The three players were present in the Northport practice together with fellow Batang Pier Nico Elorde, Jervy Cruz, Kevin Ferrer, and Sean Anthony although Jarencio just had his players have light shoot arounds.
Jarencio said it's too early to tell whether how the rookies will par against the big boys of the league.
"Titingnan pa natin, mag aadjust yan eh PBA to. Sana maging positive makapag adjust agad sila. Makatulong sa team," said Jarencio.
