THE waiting game begins for Bobby Ray Parks after his stint in the NBA Summer League ended on Sunday (Manila time) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Parks wrapped up his outing with the Dallas Mavericks in the tournament in his hope of becoming the first homegrown Filipino player to play in the world’s premiere cage league.
Charlie Dy, the representative of Parks, told Spin.ph they have yet to receive invitations from NBA teams about the possibility of playing for them or joining training camps.
“Wala pang update,” said Dy, when asked about news on Parks' next move after the Summer League stint.
The end of Summer League ,however, doesn’t mean Parks will be inactive as Dy bared the two-time UAAP MVP will continue to train in the United States, where he’s also taking the opportunity to visit his family and relatives.
“He's taking a vacation but will continue with his training,” Dy said. “(He will) visit his mom and sister and dad's relatives.”
There is also no word from Parks on whether he plans to join the PBA Rookie Draft.
Parks played for six games with the Mavericks in the Summer League, averaging 3.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, 0.2 assists, 0.8 assists, and 0.2 blocks.
He had his best showing last July 16 (July 17 Manila time) in a game against the NBA D-League Select where he finished with 10 points, five rebounds, four steals, and one assist in 21 minutes.
Back home, PBA teams are also waiting for news on whether the son of the late legendary import Bobby Parks will apply for the coming draft, where he is a projected top three pick.
