JAYSON Castro is going nowhere.

The two-time best point guard in Asia will remain with the PBA, specifically with Talk 'N Text after agreeing to a three-year maximum deal with the franchise on Saturday.

The package was worth more than P15 million, which Castro signed after the Texters' tune-up game against Star at the Moro Lorenzo gym.

The new contract finally ended speculations of the star combo guard taking his act to the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), where at least three teams had expressed their interest in his services as an Asian import.

"Triple max ang saya,' was how Castro describes renewing his ties with the Texters.

According to his longtime representative Danny Espiritu, no concrete offer came for the versatile guard from any of the Chinese teams until the November 10 deadline set by his agent.

"Sabi namin kasi kung walang offers by November 10 we will no longer have the CBA as option. Nag lapse na yung deadline kaya we already accepted yung offer ng TnT," said Espiritu.

"Ang gusto kasi namin formal offer, hindi yung kakausapin ka lang na interesado sa inyo. May feeler lang na pinapadala," he added
