Meralco taps Gilas assistant Nenad Vucinic as consultant


Meralco has added a new guy to its think tank after a heartbreaking end to their PBA Season 47 campaign.

The Bolts have added Gilas Men assistant coach Nenad Vucinic to their staff as a coaching consultant.

Vucinic was hired by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas to help out Chot Reyes with the national team early this year.

Prior to arriving in the Philippines, the 57-year-old Serbian-Kiwi tactician had stints in New Zealand, Serbia, Estonia, Italy, China, Turkey, Lebanon, and Japan.

Also part of Meralco’s staff are Norman Black, Ronnie Magsanoc, Luigi Trillo, Gene Afable, Patrick Fran, and Charles Tiu.

Composing the roster of the Bolts are Aaron Black, Chris Banchero, Raymar Jose, Cliff Hodge, Chris Newsome, Mac Belo, Franky Johnson, Anjo Caram, Bong Quinto, Raymond Almazan, Reynel Hugnatan, Allein Maliksi, Alvin Pasaol, Kyle Pascual, and Nonoy Baclao.
