KBL team Seoul Samsung signs William Navarro

William Navarro, a PBA-Gilas draftee, was signed to a 1+1 deal by Korean Basketball League team Seoul Samsung.

The team made the announcement on Thursday.

Navarro, who was drafted by Northport last year, was the only remaining full-time Gilas player prior to this as the 2019 batch had already signed with PBA teams while Jordan Heading, Jaydee Tungcab, and Tzaddy Rangel all signed with clubs already.

The 6-foot-6 all-around forward out of Ateneo has only played a handful of games over the past two years.2023-FIBA-WCQ-Gilas-vs.-India-Will-Navarro-4583 KBL team Seoul Samsung signs William Navarro Basketball Gilas Pilipinas News  - philippine sports news
