2014 PBA Draft: Not one, but two Pacquiaos for Kia after drafting Manny's cousin Rene

August 24, 2014 6:03pm

Kia Motors selected not just one, but two members of the Pacquiao family on Sunday in the PBA draft.

After drafting Filipino fight icon Manny Pacquiao in the first round, the PBA expansion club selected his cousin Rene Pacquiao in the third round of the draft.

Manny Pacquiao was earlier appointed by Kia to be the team's head coach. But he could not assume a playing coach position unless he entered the draft.

Rene, meanwhile, has a more traditional basketball resume. Standing 6-foot-4, he played college basketball at Southwestern University before a short stint in the PBA D-League. — JST, GMA News
