Meralco signs Brickman, TNT taps Gray for PBA 3×3 teams
The TNT Tropang Giga signed athletic forward Jeremiah Gray for its halfcourt team while Meralco signed methodical point guard Jason Brickman.
Brickman and Gray initially applied for the PBA rookie selection but failed to complete the necessary papers needed for applicants of Filipino-foreign descent.
“We signed Jeremiah Gray to a 1 year contract for the PBA 3×3 Inaugural Season. We would like to welcome Jeremiah to TNT Tropang GIGA 3×3. We are excited to have him onboard,” said TNT team manager Gabby Cut Friday.
The Bolts announced the signing of Brickman, who is fourth in the NCAA’s Division 1 assist ladder with 1,007, on its Twitter page.
