“Jayson Apolonio is committed to NBL and Team La Union- Paower,” read the statement of La Union Provincial Board Member and PAOwer team owner Paolo Ortega. “We deny the inclusion of Mr. Apolonio and his participation in any other professional leagues.

“To date, Mr. Apolonio is committed to play with Team La Union Paower and the NBL.”
