Before calling it quits in the PBA, the two-time Finals MVP donned the Magnolia Jersey, a team which he was a part of since 206.

He last played under the tutelage of coach Chito Victolero.

Pingris was also instrumental in the Gilas Pilipinas run in the Fiba World Cup back in 2014, where the Philippines beat Senegal for its lone win in the competition.

The 41-year-old cager will continue to don No. 15 in his jersey for his career comeback.
