MANILA, Philippines – With the NBA Development League draft only a few weeks away, Filipino basketball player Japeth Aguilar hopes to make a lasting impression in his final try-out on Saturday.

On October 20, the 6-foot-9 Aguilar will attend the Iowa Energy’s open try-out in Chicago, Illinois.

The Energy is the D-League affiliate of the Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, New Orleans Hornets and the Washington Wizards.

Chris McGarry, Aguilar’s agent, says the 25-year-old Filipino forward is ready to give his best performance.

The 2009 PBA No. 1 pick has been on a whirlwind journey trying to make it to the NBA since arriving in the US back in September. -- Dateline Philippines, ANC, October 18, 2012
