TNT Katropa to face Lance Stephenson in Terrific 12


Still in the midst of their PBA Commissioner’s Cup campaign, the TNT Katropa have something to look forward to come the end of the tournament.

The crown jewel of the MVP group will get to face Lance Stephenson in the 2019 Terrific 12, set from September 17 to 22 at the Tap Seac Multi-Sports Pavilion in Macao.

The nine-year NBA pro has signed a one-year deal worth USD 4M with CBA club team Liaoning Flying Leopards.

Liaoning is pooled with TNT and the Niigata Albirex Basketabll of Japan in Group D.

TNT and Liaoning are scheduled to face off on opening day at 9:00 pm.

The Flying Leopards were semifinalists in the 2018-19 CBA season, falling to runners-up Xinjiang Flying Tigers in the best-of-seven series, 4-1.

Stephenson is coming off a stint with the LA Lakers, averaging 7.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game.

It is still unknown whether Terrence Jones will be back for TNT for the annual tourney as the Houston Rockets are expected to sign him up after his stint with the Katropa.
