Andrei Caracut is all set to re-ignite with San Miguel Alab Pilipinas for the next step in his young career.
The De La Salle University product will be making his debut in the 2019-2020 Asean Basketball League as the Philippine team sets out to reclaim the crown it had worn two years ago.
"It's an honor to play for your country with Alab Pilipinas," he said on Saturday, just three days after he had played his last game in green and white.
In Caracut, Alab will be getting a heady guard who knows a thing or two about scoring.
The former UAAP Rookie of the Year put up per game counts of 9.6 points, 4.1 assists, and 3.0 rebounds in his fifth and final season as a Green Archer.
Caracut fortifies a fresh lineup that no longer has Ray Parks Jr., Caelan Tiongson, and PJ Ramos, but still has Lo Domingo, Brandon Rosser, and Renaldo Balkman.
Alongside the captain of the Taft-based team, though, the Filipino representatives in the regional league has also welcomed with open arms court general Jason Brickman, high-flyer Jeremiah Gray, veterans Aaron Aban and Louie Vigil, and new reinforcements Adrian Forbes and Khalif Wyatt.
