The 41-year-old wingman made his debut for the team last week in an 87-78 win over Caloocan or more than a year since retiring from the PBA.
His agent Danny Espiritu said he hasn’t talked to Baguio yet about his decision to play again, but he’s aware of the three-time PBA champion's comeback with Valenzuela.
In his first competitive game since 2019, Baguio scored seven points behind a perfect 3-of-3 shooting from the field to help his side improve to a 4-2 record for sixth place out of the 21-team standings.
Baguio's arrival gives Valenzuela another top offensive option behind Ronjay Buenafe, Patrick Cabahug, and Andre Armenion.
A native of Iligan City, Baguio played 16 seasons in the PBA for teams such as Red Bull, Burger King, Barangay Ginebra, Alaska, Phoenix, and NLEX.
The 11-time All-Star and one-time Finals MVP averaged 10.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in Asia’s first ever play-for-pay league.
