Carl Tamayo’s agency denies rumors on move to Manila Stars in MPBL

CARL Tamayo refuted claims on social media that the next chapter of his pro basketball career will be with the Manila Stars in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL).

LOOK:

“Gilas Pilipinas player Carl Tamayo will not be playing for the Manila Stars in the MPBL, despite claims made by Andrew Yu in a Facebook group. Tamayo has not confirmed this in any statement,” Tamayo’s talent agency VP Global Management said on Tuesday.

Back in January, the former University of the Philippines hotshot parted ways with the defending Japan B.League Division I champions Ryukyu Golden Kings as he looks to “explore new horizons to showcase his skills and make a more significant contribution to another team.”

The 22-year-old ace registered 2.5 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 0.3 assist in 7.8 minutes of action in 16 games played during his championship-winning rookie year with the Golden Kings.

But in his now-halted second season, Tamayo saw a meager rise in numbers with 3.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 0.6 assist in 12.5 minutes with 23 games under his belt.

In its statement, VP Global Management also underscored that Tamayo is “currently only committed to Gilas Pilipinas while weighing options on his professional basketball career.”
