Aguilar, Raymundo out Ginebra to reactivate Menk
With Japeth Aguilar out six to eight weeks and Kirby Raymundo still nursing an injury, Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is planning to reactivate former PBA Most Valuable Player Eric Menk.
Ginebra head coach Ato Agustin confirmed that the management is discussing the reactivation of Menk from sister team San Miguel Beer.
Agustin admitted that Menk might have a hard time banging bodies with younger players because of age and injuries, but Agustin, a former MVP himself said that it’s the only way they could fill in the gap in the big man department.
In 19 games in the Asean Basketball League, Menk averaged a meek 4.9 points and 2.1 rebounds. (Chris Capulso)
