Alab Pilipinas: Balkman returning for 3rd ABL season
Puerto Rican forward Renaldo Balkman will be San Miguel Alab Pilipinas’ 1st import signing for the upcoming 2019-2020 ASEAN Basketball League.
The co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2018, Balkman helped Alab win a title during the 2017-2018 season together with Justin Brownlee.
But with the PBA Governors’ Cup season still on-going, it would be interesting to see who Alab will sign next.
ABL teams are allowed 3 imports each, regardless of nationality. Alab, though, didn’t ulitize the advantage last seasom as they went with only Balkman and fellow Puerto Rican giant PJ Ramos.
The Philippine club was eliminated by Hong Kong Eastern in last season’s quarter-finals despite finishing 2nd place in the regular season.
