Tiebreaker Times Greg Slaughter to take break from Ginebra Basketball News PBA  PBA Season 45 Greg Slaughter Barangay Ginebra San Miguel

Greg Slaughter will not be returning to Barangay Ginebra for the meantime.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, the 31-year-old big man shared that his contract with the Gin Kings has expired. And he will not be renewing with the team as of the moment, instead focusing on developing his game.

“Now that my contract has expired, I’ve decided to take a break to be able to work on myself in all aspects.”

Two years after winning the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Best Player of the Conference, the 7-foot big man experienced a roller-coaster.

Though he would go on to win three more championships since then, Slaughter’s numbers dropped. Last season, he only averaged 9.6 points on 51-percent shooting, 6.4 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks in 22.4 minutes per game.

With his play, he received criticism left and right. And he vows to prove them wrong during his time away from the big league.

“I may not know what the future holds, but one thing is for sure — the best is yet to come!”

Still, Slaughter remains grateful to Ginebra for making his dreams come true.

“Six years, four championships, a lifetime of experiences and memories. It’s been a fun ride being with this team. I will forever be proud to have played for Ginebra, a dream of mine that came true when they drafted me in 2013,” he expressed.
