Mahindra thankful for White's services
In four games in the ongoing Commissioner's Cup, White averaged 30.5 points, 18.5 rebounds, and one assist per outing.

Mahindra has let go of James White, the import that led the franchise to its first, and so far, only playoff appearance in the PBA last season.

And although the Floodbuster has tapped Keith Wright to replace White, it doesn't mean the team completely took the former Georgia Tech product for granted.

"Like I said before, we love James. James is family to us," top deputy Chris Gavina said on their 23-year-old former import.

While no longer with the team, White was on deck Wednesday at the Big Dome as Wright officially made his debut in the PBA.

That gesture means that White likewise treats Mahindra as family. Mahindra was his first pro stint after finishing his time with the Yellow Jackets.

"His show of support right now just shows his level of professionalism," Gavina said of White.

"Being able to still support his guys that he's fought game to game, I pay a lot of tribute for his professionalism," he added.

In four games in the ongoing Commissioner's Cup, White averaged 30.5 points, 18.5 rebounds, and one assist per outing.

Last season in the Governors' Cup, he went for 24.5 points, 13 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 2 blocks before the then Enforcer were eliminated in the quarterfinals by the Meralco Bolts.
