    Quinahan out of NLEX

    JR Quinahan

    JR Quinahan’s contract has been terminated by NLEX.

    The 38-year-old Quinahan had around seven months left in his contract but he was dropped by the team after he took part in an unsanctioned game in Cebu where he got into a fight with a foreign player.


    Quinahan stands to lose P3.3 million based on his monthly maximum salary of P420,000.

    He is now a free agent and can sign with another team.

    Quinahan was earlier penalized P50,000 by the PBA for not seeking clearance to play in the “ligang labas” plus P20,000 for being involved in the endgame melee.
