Zamboanga Valientes’ Avery Scharer detained by immigration

Avery Scharer went to social media to plead for help.

On Friday evening, the prolific 36-year-old Filipino-American guard was detained at Manila International Airport Terminal 1.

Scharer is signed with the Zamboanga Valientes for the 2023 ABL Invitational Tournament.

According to Valientes team owner Junnie Navarro, it might have something to do with Scharer’s passport but it is already being sorted out.
