Converge signs twin towers Ambohot, Arana to rookie deals


Converge has locked its frontcourt that will pave its future.

The FiberXers have signed Jeo Ambohot and Justin Arana to separate deals over the past two days.

Ambohot, the third overall pick in the 2022 PBA Rookie Draft, signed a three-year deal. Meanwhile, Arana, whom Converge nabbed at four, inked a two-year contract.

The two feel excited to play with each other after countless battles in the NCAA and a short time as teammates in Pasig-Sta Lucia in Filbasket.

“Yun nga eh, mas okay yun kasi dalawa na kaming rookies sa team, tapos kaibigan ko rin siya eh. Nagkasama kami sa Pasig sa Filbasket,” said Ambohot, the NCAA Season 97 Seniors Basketball Finals MVP.

“Sobrang excited po talaga ako kasi syempre teammate na naman po kami ulit, and kaibigan ko siya,” chimed Arana.

“Tsaka excited din po talaga ako na sabay kami matuturuan ni Coach Danny Ildefonso.”

Also signing a one-year deal with Converge is Kurt Lojera.

Lojera was traded by Blackwater to Converge for Yousef Taha last Tuesday.

Representing Converge during the signings was human resource head Albert Custodio.

Arana was with his agent Edgar Mangahas, while Alvin Torno accompanied Arana.
