The Albay Volcanoes will have ex-pro Alex Nuyles and former Letran Knight Jonathan Aldave in their lineup when they hit the hard floor in the next season of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League.

Head coach Monel Kallos confirmed the news to Courtside Philippines, adding that the team has also acquired the services of local players Leo Blanca, of the municipality of Malinao, and Dan Monsalve, of Legazpi City.

The team is looking to have 10 more local players in the roster, Kallos said.

The Volcanoes will hold tryouts on April 10 and 11 in the municipality of Polangui, and on April 12 and 13 in Legazpi City.

On Saturday, MPBL founder Senator Manny Pacquiao officially welcomed the team into the league. The meeting was held at the Senator’s mansion in General Santos City.

Kallos, Albay Volcanoes owner Gil Orense, and team manager Nomar Isla, as well as MPBL commissioner Kenneth Duremdes, were all present in the meeting, Kallos said.
