San Miguel Alab Pilipinas continues to add depth into their local lineup for the upcoming ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) season, adding former national team youth standout Andrei Caracut.
After recently wrapping up his final playing year with De La Salle University at the collegiate level where he averaged 9.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game, Caracut will be making his debut with the Philippine club in Asia’s first regional professional league.
“It wouldn’t be that easy because there are a lot of talented players out there,” remarked the 23-year-old on his transition to the pros. “It will be challenging as well, but for me, I’m looking forward to the learning experience. I’m very excited because I know it is going to be fun.”
The 6-foot combo guard will be joining fellow new arrivals Jason Brickman, Jeremiah Grey, Jordan Heading, Louie Vigil, Aaron Aban, and imports Adrian Forbes and Khalif Wyatt. Meanwhile, Brandon Rosser, Lawrence Domingo, and former ABL Co-Defensive Player of the Year Renaldo Balkman will also be returning to the team.
The 2017-18 ABL Champions decided to revamp their roster as they look to rebound from last season’s early quarterfinals exit where they got swept by Hong Kong Eastern in two games, despite finishing the regular season as the second-seeded team.
San Miguel Alab Pilipinas has about half a month to go before they tip off their 2019-20 campaign on the road against the Mono Vampire Basketball Club on November 17.
