Chris Lutz will have a chance to re-introduce himself after signing with the Meralco Bolts
The Meralco Bolts picked-up six-year league veteran Chris Lutz on Monday afternoon.
Lutz’s agent Marvin Espiritu confirmed the news, adding that the Alaska Aces had also tried to sign the 31-year-old.
The third overall pick in the 2011 PBA Draft spent all five of his seasons with the San Miguel Beermen. During his stay with the SMC-backed franchise, he averaged 7.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists.
However, Lutz posted career-lows of 3.6 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in just 34 games during San Miguel’s 2015-16 campaign as a nagging ankle injury forced him to sit out a few games.
Still, the Filipino-American winger is still on the road to recovery, but Espiritu affirmed that his client will play this season.
