Matt Ganuelas-Rosser comes back home to TNT

It didn’t take long for Matt Ganuelas-Rosser to find a new home.

Or an old one, rather.

The versatile 6-foot-6 winger has signed a three-year deal with TNT for a homecoming of sorts, the team announced through its official social media pages Friday evening.

He was previously offered a two-year extension by Terrafirma but turned it down to test free agency, eventually coming back where he started his PBA career.

Ganuelas-Rosser was picked fourth overall by NLEX in 2014, but was traded to the flagship MVP franchise almost a month after the Rookie Draft.

He won his first PBA championship with the Tropang Texters in his first year, which also saw him earn All-Rookie honors at season’s end.

His time with TNT, though, ended in 2017. He was traded to San Miguel for RR Garcia in a rare occurrence that rival conglomerates swapped players.

Ganuelas-Rosser won four titles with the Beermen while serving as an important cog in head coach Leo Austria’s star-studded rotation.

Now, he’s back to where it all began. And he also gets to reunite with familiar faces from Gilas Pilipinas like mentor Chot Reyes and Jayson Castro.

Ganuelas-Rosser is among the Tropa’s newest pickups.

Last Tuesday, the team signed Rey Mark Acuno after being relegated by Blackwater to its unrestricted free agent list, with rights to salary (UFAWR2S).

Ganuelas-Rosser is just the latest to enjoy the league’s new free agency ruling, which benefits first the rookie class he belongs to.

Batchmates Rodney Brondial and Nards Pinto were the first to take advantage of such when they signed with San Miguel and Barangay Ginebra, respectively.
