Former FEU Tamaraw Raymar Jose finally gets the respect he deserved.

Philippine Star’s Nelson Beltran reported that Blackwater agreed to give the 2017 PBA No. 3 draft pick the max rookie contract – P8.55 million fo three years.

This means that all top 5 picks in the 2017 draft – No. 1 pick Christian Standhardinger of San Miguel, No. 2 pick Kiefer Ravena of NLEX, No. 4 pick Jason Perkins of Phoenix, and No. 5 pic Jeron Teng of Alasaka – get the maxt contract.

Previously, Blackwater owner Dioceldo Sy tried to low ball Jose by giving him only a one-year contract because he wanted the national team player to prove his worth before tying him to a longer contract.
