The Terrence Romeo era in TNT is officially underway.

The Bro reported to practice Wednesday, just a day after his trade from Globalport to the KaTropa was made official.

Terrence was acquired by the flagship MVP franchise for former no. 1 pick Mo Tautuaa. TNT also took center Yousef Taha and the KaTropa shipped future draft picks to the way of the Batang Pier as well.

In TNT, Romeo will team up with Jayson Castro to form a potent backcourt. Terrence is also reunited with his former FEU teammates RR Garcia and RR Pogoy as well as head coach Nash Racela.

Racela was in his first season as the Tamaraws head coach when Romeo won the UAAP MVP award.

"Masaya, syempre kasi magkakasama kami ng mga dati kong teammates tapos dati ko ring naging coach si coach Nash," Romeo said.

"So kailangan, kailangan ang pinasok ko sa isip ko maging deserving ako sa gagampanan kong role kasi kailangan naming alamin role ng isa't-isa eh. Magwo-work hard ako para makatulong sa team," he added.

While the trade came a couple of weeks before the start of the Commissioner's Cup, Romeo says he's more than ready to go for the KaTropa.

After dealing with nagging injuries, Terrence says he's healthy now.

"100 percent healthy ako, pero yun nga, yung shape, yung kundisyon ko, medyo malayo pa," he said.

"Wala pa yata akong 50 eh. Malayo pa. Ang laki pa ng dapat kong i-lose na weight. So kailangan magawa ko yun in siguro may 20 days pa ba ako or less than. So hopefully, hopefully magawa ko yun. And di ko binibigyan ng pressure yung sarili ko kasi di naman to basketball na ako lang mag-isa eh against ibang team, hindi. Andiyan sina kuya Jayson, andiyan sila RR, sila Jericho, lahat yan, sila kuya Kelly, Troy. Lahat yan capable of ano, so mas mapapagaan sakin," Romeo added.
