SOURCES: Phoenix in a rush to complete Abueva’s requirements

Phoenix Super LPG is racing against time for Calvin Abueva.

The deadline for bringing Abueva into the PBA bubble before October 11 is closing in.

According to multiple sources closely monitoring the situation, the enigmatic 32-year-old forward met with PBA commissioner Willie Marcial to discuss whether he can join the team. Abueva has been serving his suspension since June 4, 2019.

Later in the day, Marcial — who confirmed that a talk took place — opted to remain non-committal on whether Abueva is set for a homecoming in Pampanga.

“Tignan na lang natin,” he said. “Ayaw kong sagutin. Pasensya na, may tinatapos pa. Mahirap. Ayaw kong mag-commit.

“Pwede, pwedeng hindi. So sorry muna. Sorry talaga. Hindi ako maka-commit.”

Marcial added that all Abueva has to do is to complete his remaining assignment.

For its part, the Games and Amusement Board has assured that it will give Abueva a new license once he attends a final seminar.

Abueva and Phoenix head coach Topex Robinson met with GAB officials, Tuesday as well.

Phoenix is ready to pick up Abueva from his San Juan home and bring him to Clark once given the go-signal.
