MANILA—A good bunch of PBA draftees have been left unsigned at the end of the window for the teams to sign them up.

In a memorandum given to the clubs on Wednesday, which was revealed on Thursday, 23 players were not given tender offers, thus making them unrestricted free agents.

NorthPort has the most players essentially let go with six, namely Loren Brill, Marvin Moraga, Carl Ravanes, Seraj Elmejrab, Jonico Rosales, and Jed Mendoza.

NLEX and Terrafirma, on the other hand, each left four players unsigned.

The Road Warriors did not make tender offers to Jun-Jun Bonsubre, Joe Presbitero, Joseph Alcantara, and Alberto Torres.

The Dyip, meanwhile, let go of Dhon Reverente, Jay Javelosa, Nico Custodio, and Terrence Tumalip.

Reverente was projected to be selected in the second round according to some mock drafts, but he slipped to the third round.

Based on his performance in the MPBL, Reverente could be the steal among those left unsigned.

Meralco, which on Thursday inked first round pick Alvin Pasaol to a two-year deal, did not do the same to Jay-R Yasa and Louie Brill.

TNT, on the other hand, did not sign up Joel Lee Yu and Martin Gozum.

Rain Or Shine opted to let go of former UAAP juniors champion Philip Manalang, Magnolia did not sign former Jose Rizal University standout and MPBL star Andoy Estrella, and San Miguel left Luis Abaca unsigned.

The said players will join the undrafted players in free agency.
