Career highlights and awards

Anthony Jay Washington Vea (born November 10, 1981) is a Filipino-American professional basketball who plays for the GlobalPort Batang Pier in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).[1]

College career[edit]

Born in Zambales, Philippines, Washington played for the Eckerd College Tritons during his college career.[2] In 2002, he had per-game averages of 20.5 pts (on 36% 3PT shooting) and 3.9 rebs in 32 games. He then raised his averages to 21.7 pts and 5.5 rebs in 32 games the next season.[3] For his senior season, Washington was named to the Sunshine State Conference All Tournament Team.[3] Washington also suited up for the Gwinnett Grizzlies at the 2004 LA Summer Pro League.[3]

Professional career[edit]

Washington was selected 1st overall draft pick in 2005 PBA draft by the FedEx Express and was traded to the Talk 'N Text Phone Pals during draft day. Despite putting good numbers, high expectations and the deep rotation of Talk 'N Text led him to being traded to the San Miguel Beermen in 2008 in exchange for the draft rights of 2008 3rd overall pick Jayson Castro. During the 2010 PBA Fiesta Conference, he was awarded the Best Player of the Conference. He is a three time Mythical First Team Awardee in the PBA. He was then awarded another Best Player of the Conference Award during Game 4 of the 2010–11 PBA Philippine Cup Finals.

On June 11, 2013, Washington was sent to the GlobalPort Batang Pier after a trade that also sent Japeth Aguilar from GlobalPort to Barangay Ginebra.[4]

On September 22, 2014, he was traded from GlobalPort to Talk 'N Text for Nonoy Baclao, rookie Harold Arboleda and the rights for Talk 'N Text's 2nd round pick in the 2018 draft. This trade is a part of a series of trades between Talk 'N Text, GlobalPort, and NLEX Road Warriors. He returned to Talk 'N Text after playing his first 3 seasons in the PBA with the Texters.
