Mike Glover has been sent back home.
The TNT Katropa import, who played versus the NLEX Road Warriors in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup opener last Friday, was nowhere to be found inside the Ynares Center in Antipolo City as the Texters battled the Meralco Bolts.
Team manager Virgil Villavicencio confirmed that Glover – who had already played in the league back in 2016 with the GlobalPort Batang Pier – has been released by the KaTropa and is now on his way out of the country.
“Pauwi na,” said Villavicencio.
Villavicencio did not sugarcoat anything regarding Glover’s release, saying that it was the latter’s underperformance versus the Road Warriors that led to his exit – Glover only had 11 points and 15 rebounds in the 103-90 loss.
“Actually… It was more of playing below expectations. I mean, alam niyo naman, import eh, tapos dun sa stats minus-26. And he’s been here two weeks,” pointed out the amiable executive.
“So, parang below expectations.“
With Glover nowhere on Sunday, the Katropa had to play with an all-Filipino crew. But they managed to get the job done as they came back from a slim deficit late to stun the Bolts, 92-90, for their first win in the conference.
Now, TNT are waiting for the replacement of Glover. Villavicencio said that they are choosing among three possible players, and whoever comes first, the new import should be available on Friday as they battle the Blackwater Elite
“Definitely we’ll know tomorrow. We have at least three. Kumbaga whoever comes first.”
