TNT coach Bong Ravena says absent Terrence Romeo ‘just sick’
MANILA, Philippines—TNT head coach Bong Ravena beat around the bush when asked about the status of polarizing guard Terrence Romeo with the team.
Romeo is reportedly on the trading block after being absent from the team for some time now, but Ravena did not say exactly if the guard will be traded or not.
Ravena did say that whatever’s going on with Romeo is beneficial to both the former Far Eastern University star and the whole KaTropa team.
“As of now, wherever he’s in it’s maybe the best for him and the team,” said Ravena after the PBA Draft Sunday at Robinson’s Manila. “He did not go AWOL (absent without official leave) he had a flu so we let him rest first.”
Romeo was traded to TNT in April of 2018 after playing his first five years with NorthPort, then known as Globalport, and if a trade happens then the spitfire guard won’t even last a year with TNT.
Ravena did not also confirm if whether Romeo is indeed being shopped in the trade market or not.
“I don’t want to confirm it or deny it,” said Ravena.
He added that there’s no problem with Romeo and that he’s just sick.
“There’s no problem with him and he’s professional with dealing with teams,” said Ravena.
