MANILA, Philippines -- Former PBA top draft pick Japeth Aguilar has been waived by the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Developmental League.

Aguilar was included in a list of players who have been waived by their team and will be placed on waivers on November 23. 

The Warriors picked Aguilar in the seventh round of the D-League draft.

Aguilar made it to the Warriors' training camp roster and played in limited minutes in their pre-season games, but ultimately did not make it to their final roster for the season.

Aguilar played college ball for the Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. The Talk N Text Tropang Texters made him the No. 1 pic in the 2009 PBA Rookie Draft.
