JEREMIAH Gray is about to take the Philippines by storm as he has signed with San Miguel Alab Pilipinas for the upcoming season of the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL).
Sources closely monitoring the situation confirmed that the Fil-Am swingman has inked a deal with the Philippine-based squad in the regional league this year.
This will be the 6-foot-5 winger's first time to play for a club team here in the country after lacing it up with Mighty Sports in the international competitions.
Gray, however, doesn't want to look his arrival to Alab as somewhat of a replacement for three-time ABL Local MVP Bobby Ray Parks, who is now flying the Blackwater colors in the PBA.
"I’m sure that people see it this way, but I am not looking to fill the shoes of Parks," he said. "I want to come in and leave my own legacy and mark on this team. What Ray did in his time here was amazing, but now it’s my time to make a name for myself."
It will also reunite him with Jason Brickman, who he played with in his time with Mighty.
Gray averaged 14.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in the 2019 Dubai International Basketball Championship, before netting 9.1 points on a 42-percent clip from deep, to go with 3.5 boards, and 1.0 assist in Mighty's sweep of the 2019 Jones Cup.
The 23-year-old also took his act to the Drew League, where he dropped 23 points in an overtime win for Citi Team Blazers against LaMelo Ball-led No Shnacks back in August.
Gray spent two years in Moorepark College, before finishing his Business Administration degree in Dominican College.
