Basketball Career:

After no team showed interest in him in the 2006 PBA Draft, Dennis Daa persevered in the amateur circuits and transformed himself into an offensive threat after just a year. Daa was a force in the PBL scoring at will against meager competition. Together with JV Casio and Andy Larong, Daa was crtitical in Toyota Otis winning the 2006 PBL Unity Cup. He has been toughened up by stints in the PBL which culminated with a spot in the Mythical Five

Sta. Lucia took notice and signed him to a two-year contract in the 2007 PBA Draft.


So far, Daa has performed relatively well as the chief reliever of both Dennis Espino and Marlou Aquino. In the 17 games he has played in teh 2008 PBA Philippine Cup, Daa averaged 16.0 mpg, 3.8 ppg and 3.7 rpg. He also averaged a decent 42.950 percent from the 2-point area and 66.7 percent from the line.

His best game in the pro league would be the one against Ginebra last 10 November 2007, where he scored 7 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and committed 2 errors in 28 minutes. With the apparent retirement of Aquino in the next couple years, Daa may need to improve his numbers further if he wants to stay as a Realtor.
