Brondial declines two-year deal with Alaska, enters free agency


Rodney Brondial has bid farewell to Alaska.

The 6-foot-5 bruising big man has now entered free agency as he’s among the several PBA players whose contracts expired last December 31.

On Thursday, the 31-year-old took to Instagram to express gratitude to the storied ball club, which he represented for over a couple of years.

“Thank you so much for the wonderful experience! All love,” he wrote in a post accompanied by a photo of him in Aces threads. “God bless us all.”

According to Alaska governor Dickie Bachmann, the team offered the seven-year pro a two-year deal which he declined to enter free agency.

“Rodney is part of the batch of players that became free agents when their contracts expire, free to choose which team to go to,” explained Bachmann.

We did offer a two-year contract but I guess that was not enough.”

Brondial became part of Alaska back in November 2019, when he and Robbie Herndon got traded by Magnolia in exchange for Chris Banchero.

His best conference with the franchise happened in the 2021 Philippine Cup, where he put up per-game norms of 8.3 points and 8.5 rebounds.

The Adamson product churned out two double-double games in the tournament, including a 17-point, 12-rebound outing in a close loss to San Miguel.

Brondial played for five games in the Governors’ Cup and normed 4.6 markers and 3,6 boards. The Aces presently sport a 3-2 record.

With this, the one-time champion is free to sign with any team.
