The 26-year-old Parks helped San Miguel Alab Pilipinas finish second in the standings with an 18-8 record at the end of the elimination round.
Alab Pilipinas, however, faltered in the playoffs after getting eliminated by seventh seed Hong Kong Eastern in the quarterfinals.
Parks became the first player in ABL history to win the MVP plum thrice.
The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 16 points on 52 percent shooting from the field, 4.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game in the 2019 season.
Parks, the second overall pick by Blackwater in the 2018 PBA Draft, is set to make his long-awaited PBA debut for the Elite in the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup later this month.
