    Joshua Munzon shelves D-League move, returns to Malaysia Dragons in ABL

    Dec 30, 2017
    Joshua Munzon set an ABL single-season record with 61 steals. 

    JOSHUA Munzon has returned to the Westports Malaysia Dragons for the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League (ABL) season.

    The Fil-American guard replaced Reil Cervantes as the Dragons’ heritage import in a transaction completed during the league’s Christmas break, according to the team's official website.

    The 21-year-old Munzon averaged 19 points last season with the Saigon Heat and the Malaysia Dragons and made his biggest mark on defense, setting a single season steals record of 61.


      Munzon is expected to make his season debut on Wednesday against Tanduay Alab Pilipinas.

      In a previous interview prior to the ABL season, Munzon was still undecided on whether to stay in the regional basketball league or apply for the PBA D-League draft.

      Eventually, Munzon, who also played in the Thailand professional league, decided not to pursue a move to the PBA D-League.

      The Dragons currently hold a 1-2 win-loss slate.
