NorthPort activates Zavier Lucero who will make PBA debut

ZAVIER Lucero is in line to make his PBA debut after being activated by NorthPort on Thursday on the eve of their Philippine Cup opener.

Lucero has been activated in the roster, replacing John Amores for the Batang Pier’s conference opener against NLEX on Friday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

Lucero has been out of action for more than a year after sustaining an ACL injury during the 2022 UAAP finals while playing for the University of the Philippines.

But the injury didn’t prevent Lucero from being drafted by the Batang Pier at No. 5 in last September’s draft.

The 6-foot-7 Lucero also signed a two-year contract with the Batang Pier after being drafted, the UP high-flyer won the Mythical Five in 2021 and was the second leading scorer of the Maroons behind Carl Tamayo with an average of 11.4 points.

Lucero did his rehab in the United States and recently flew back to the country following his recovery to prepare for his upcoming stint with NorthPort.
