AJ Bramah picked the first draft of the 2022 National Basketball League

Santo Domingo.- AJ Bramah was first selected by the San Francisco de Macorís Indians in the 2022 National Basketball Association (LNB) Rookie Draft, held at the Blue Mall’s Hard Rock Café on Wednesday.

Brama is a 6’7 forward who played in the NCAA with Robert Morris and Nevada universities, averaging 15.0, 8.6 rebounds and 54.5% from the field in three seasons (49 games) .

“We are more than satisfied. His position is the one we aspire to strengthen and with him we will be even better. We got closer to him and our fans can count on AJ from day one,” said Louis Izmurdock, general manager of the Franco-Macorisanos team.

The second chosen was striker Alanzo Frink (6’7), chosen by Realis de la Vega. Frink is a forward who recently completed his fourth year in the NCAA with the East Carolinas and was on the national team in the minor divisions.

The Puerto Plata Mariners then selected forward Justin Minaya (6’6), son of baseball executive Omar Minaya. Justin finished his college football career with Providence, averaging 6.5 points and 5.5 rebounds in 32 games.

The fourth choice was in the hands of Indus (via Soles de Santo Domingo Este), who chose force forward Juan Junior Rosario, from Cotoi.

Santiago Metro also made two first-round selections. They took shooter Luis Almanza with the fifth pick and then goaltender Juan Felix Rodriguez with the seventh. Prayutin Savignon Ramirez was named the sixth pick of the first round by Cañeros del Este, while current champion Leon de Santo Domingo concluded with point guard Jason Rivera.
