Heading, 25, was the first overall pick in the Gilas part of the 2020 Gilas Draft. He was selected by Terrafirma Dyip.2021-PBA-Draft-Gilas-Terrafirma-Jordan-Heading Jordan Heading comes back home to Taiwan, signs with T1's Taichung Suns Basketball News  - philippine sports news

During his time in Gilas, he averaged 6.5 points and 1.5 assists during the Asia Cup Qualifiers.

The 6-foot-2 combo guard went on to norm 14.5 points and 3.0 assists in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Serbia.

“Heading improves our backcourt height,” said Taichung general manager Wang Weijie. “Our backcourt is relatively short.

“His addition will be of great help to us and I look forward to the spark he will give the Taichung Suns this season.”

Heading becomes the third Filipino to sign with the upstart Taiwanese league after Jason Brickman (Kaohsiung Aquas) and Caelan Tiongson (Taoyuan Leopards). Both are also alums of Alab.

He is also another Gilas player that has signed with an overseas league after Dwight Ramos (Toyama Grouses), Thirdy Ravena (San-En NeoPhoenix), Kemark Cariño (Aomori Wat’s), Javi Gomez de Liaño (Ibaraki Robots), Kobe Paras (Niigata Albirex), and Juan Gomez de Liaño (Earthfriends Tokyo Z).
