TNT KaTropa will field a complete 15-man roster at the start of PBA Season 42 despite the submitting an incomplete lineup on Monday  

Only 12 players were listed in the Texters’ opening-day roster for the Philippine Cup, the least among the teams participating, with some even listing as many as 16, including one on the reserve list.

Kris Rosales, Harvey Carey, Mo Tautuaa, Ryan Reyes, Larry Fonacier, Roger Pogoy, Jayson Castro, Troy Rosario, Kelly Williams, Matt Rosser, Ranidel de Ocampo, and Aaron Aban are those listed in the TNT lineup.

But TNT team manger Virgil Villavicencio said Danny Seigle, who recently renewed his contract, and Frank Golla, acquired in a trade with Blackwater for Dylan Ababou, will soon be added to the official roster.

Alex Nuyles, rookie Levi Hernandez, and Oping Sumalinog are still fighting for the last spot in the 15-man lineup, with the two left out to be relegated as practice players.

“We’re still finalizing contract negotiations with some of the players,” Villavicencio said.
