Misamis Oriental picked Fil-Am Lance Beverette during the inaugural draft held May 14 at the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) office in Pasig City for the first ever joint venture of the Philippine Basketball League (PBL) and Liga Pilipinas dubbed as Tournament of the Philippines which fires off on June 2 in Manila.
Initial info on Beverette is that he is listed as a 6’6 196-lb, athletic combo-guard out of Berkley College. He is physically fit but settles as a role player. His unorthodox shooting technique makes him a streaky shooter; looks to set screens off ball; but has questionable decision making with the ball & shot selection. He also communicates well with his coachesa and teammates.
Based on the scouting report, Beverette may blend well in the team’s lineup because of his being a role player. But still, we hope he may be what the doctor ordered.
