Gary David shows up in San Miguel Beer practice after free-agent transfer
Gary David joined SMB for the first time in practice.

GARY David started his stint with San Miguel Beer on Friday when he joined the Beermen in practice for the first time.

Team manager Gee Abanilla confirmed the former PBA scoring champion's presence in the team’s practice at Acropolis gym in Libis, a day after the Beermen acquired David from the free-agent market.

“Yes, he did (practice),” Abanilla said in a text message.

David, who was relegated to the unrestricted free-agent list by Meralco, is now set to fight for minutes in a loaded SMB backcourt rotation led by Marcio Lassiter, Chris Lutz, Ronald Tubid, and Ryan Arana.

The team is still mum on details of his contract.
