Peter John Ramos will be joining San Miguel Alab Pilipinas as one of their imports when they open their title defense in the upcoming ASEAN Basketball League (ABL).
No stranger to playing in the Philippines, the 7-foot-3 Ramos will sign on as one of Alab Pilipinas’ imports, giving them a massive boost in size this season. He had monstrous 36-point, 21-rebound averages in his lone season in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) with Kia Carnival in 2015.
Aside from playing professionally the Philippines and in his native Puerto Rico, the 33-year-old big man had stints in the NBA, the NBA D-League (now G League), Spain, China, South Korea, and the Dominican Republic.
Alab Pilipinas head coach Jimmy Alapag welcomes the addition of Ramos, which he deemed vital as the team looks to go back-to-back.
“We are very excited to have PJ Ramos join the Alab family for the upcoming ABL season,” shared Alapag. “PJ is a veteran guy who brings quality leadership and experience to the team. His dominant presence in the middle will be key for us as we try to defend our championship.”
The defending ABL Champions are expected to try and retain Justin Brownlee, once his season wraps up with Ginebra, and Renaldo Balkman, as the team’s second and third imports, while also keeping Local Most Valuable Player Bobby Ray Parks Jr. for at least one more season before he makes a move for the PBA.
