Another Filipino prospect has joined the B.League.
Kemark Carino has decided to turn pro, signing with B.League Division II team Aomori Wat’s.
The 6-foot-8 big man said in a short message how excited he is to join Aomori.
Aomori is currently rebuilding after finishing in last place of the East District a year ago.
“I’m really looking forward to playing in front of you soon,” said the 23-year-old native of Mangatarem, Pangasinan.
Titans Management Group, which was accredited by FIBA a year ago, was the one who facilitated the signing.
By going to Japan, Carino has forgone his time in San Beda. He had two years of eligibility left.
Carino played a total of 49 games for the Red Lions, norming 2.18 points and 1.17 rebounds per game.
Carino is also part of the national team pool.
He made his Gilas Men debut during the second window of the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers, averaging 3.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in two games played.
Carino is the fifth Filipino joining the B.League.
Thirdy Ravena is with San-En, while older brother Kiefer is signed with Shiga. Juan also signed with a B2 team in Tokyo Z while Javi was tapped by Ibaraki.
