While numerous teams are revamping their lineups, the Datu Cup national champions San Juan Knights are keeping their core intact for the next season of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League, according to head coach Randy Alcantara.

In an interview with Courtside Philippines during the Knights practice on Monday, Alcantara pointed out that John Wilson, Mac Cardona, Larry Rodriguez, Mike Ayonayon, Jhonard Clarito, and Orlan Wamar will all be back for the next season.

Aaron Jeruta, Mike Parala, and Jordan Rios, however, are no longer part of the team.

Alcantara said that, after the team won the crown in last month, Rodriguez, Ayonayon, Wamar, Art Aquino, and Clarito continued playing in the Philippine Basketball Association Developmental League.

“The rest talagang humingi ng break,” the head coach said.

The multi-titled coach also said that the team initially planned to resume training last week, but decided to have their first official practice on Monday even though some of the players are still in vacation and some are recovering from injuries.
