03:03 PM June 24, 2014


MANILA, Philippines—Former UAAP superstar Ray Parks’s journey to the NBA just took a step forward.

Parks, one of the country’s brightest young stars, was invited by the Los Angeles Lakers to report back to training Tuesday (Manila time).


“Got called back to work out with the Lakers tomorrow :) Thank you Lord! #parasabayan,” Parks, son of the late legendary PBA import Bobby Ray, posted on his Twitter account.

The former two-time UAAP MVP Parks opted to forgo his final two years with National University to pursue his NBA dream.


The 21-year-old Parks had also hinted at possibly joining the PBA Draft, saying that “I keep all options open.”

Parks, at 6-foot-4, has shown he’s capable of playing multiple positions while also displaying his all-around game and still has a lot of room to grow as he tries to become the first Filipino to make it to the NBA.

“Just finished working out with one of the best team in NBA,i know this is your favorite team and you would have loved to had been there,but this is just the beginning..Thank you Lord for this blessed opportunity #DreamChaser #blessed #LakerNation#NBAGear,” Parks posted on his Instagram recently.
