    GAB Banal has finally returned to the PBA, signing as a free agent with Alaska after several stints outside the pro league.

    No less than Banal announced the signing in social media post that showed him in a photo with Alaska team governor Dickie Bachmann. Alaska coach Jeff Cariaso later confirmed the signing to SPIN.ph.

    “We are excited to have on board Gab Banal. As a player, he is what I’m looking for because he plays on both ends,” said Cariaso.

    Banal was drafted in 2014 by San Miguel, but never got a decent run in the PBA. He was sparingly used during his stint with GlobalPort in 2017.

    But Banal made waves outside the PBA, seeing action in the MPBL, PBA D-League, and Chooks 3x3 Pilipinas.
