Dean Paulo Villegas Hubalde (born January 24, 1981), sometimes known as Paolo Hubalde, is a Filipino professional basketball player for the Alab Pilipinas of the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL). He is the son of one of the greatest shooters to ever play in the PBA, Freddie Hubalde. Paolo plays the guard position.
Paolo was the lone draft by the San Miguel Beermen in 2005, probably a move if he can be an understudy for the aging Olsen Racela. His role diminished when the Beermen took in Brandon Cablay and played only 8 games in that season in just 5 minutes a night of exposure.
But the 5-11 point guard saw himself reuniting with coach Jong Uichico with the Barangay Ginebra Kings in a multi-player trade in the early part of the season. Unfortunately, he was a third stringer in the point guard rotation after the Kings signed veteran Johnny Abarrientos to be the chief backup of Jayjay Helterbrand.
After the 2010–11 PBA Philippine Cup, he was acquired by the Beermen for a 2nd stint. There he became a role player and helped the Cojuangco-owned franchise now known as the Petron Blaze Boosters win the 2011 PBA Governors' Cup against Talk 'N Text.
