NLEX still waiting for PBA clearance to allow Kiefer to play in PH Cup

Kiefer Ravena is not part of the 15-man roster of NLEX for the 2022 PBA Philippine Cup.

Ravena, who is in the country, had been negotiating with the league to play just one conference before going back to Japan to play for Shiga in the B.League.

The Road Warriors brass had already notified the league of the request and is waiting for a response.

“No word yet from PBA if they will allow his request to play just one conference,” said NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao.

Ravena last played for NLEX back on July 25, 2021.

The PBA would allow Ravena to play for Shiga afterward with the clause that he has to only play one season there.

“If he does not return to the Philippines, that’s when the 27-year-old combo guard will be handed a sanction by the league,” said NLEX team manager Ronald Dulatre during a press conference last year.

“May mga sanction ako na sinabi kay Kiefer pag hindi siya bumalik,” said league commissioner Willie Marcial, adding that Ravena’s commitment to return is written and binding.

Part of NLEX’s lineup are Justin Chua, Michael Miranda, Raul Soyud, Kris Rosales, Kevin Alas, Don Trollano, Philip Paniamogan, Paul Varilla, Larry Fonacier, Kenneth Ighalo, Marion Magat, Matt Nieto, Anthony Semerad, and JR Quinahan.
