Two-time ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) Local Most Valuable Player Bobby Ray Parks Jr. on Tuesday, April 9, signed a contract with PBA team Blackwater Elite.
Parks, his agent Charlie Dy, and Elite’s team governor Siliman Sy were present during the signing of the reported one-year contract worth Php 2 million.
Elite drafted the 6’4 Filipino – American basketball player during the 2018 PBA Draft in December 2018. However, the no.2 overall draft pick did not immediately suit up for the PBA team since he still has a contract with ABL team Alab Pilipinas.
Aside from winning two MVP awards, Parks along with Alab Pilipinas won the championship in the ABL in 2018.
Parks is expected to make his debut in the PBA during the league’s 2019 Commissioner’s Cup, which will start in May.
