    AS if winning the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup and maiden 3x3 tournament wasn't enough. TnT is still reinforcing its roster for the coming Governors Cup.

    The Tropang Giga signed free agent Gab Banal after the veteran forward parted ways with Alaska, sources told SPIN.ph.

    Team manager Gabby Cui later confirmed the signing of the 31-year-old forward, but refused to reveal the length of the contract.

    "Yes, we just signed Gab Banal," said the amiable TnT official without elaborating.

    Obviously, the TNT contract is significantly longer and bigger than the one-conference Alaska offer which Banal declined.

      In an interview by SPIN.ph's Reuben Terrado, Banal admitted he was seeking a longer contract extension with the Aces, but Alaska management could only offer him another one-conference deal.

        Without a doubt, his entry at TnT gave the team added firepower as it bids to complete a sweep of the league's 46th season following its championship run in the last all-Filipino Cup.
