The Bataan Risers will be playing in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League next season, team owner Borgie Hermida has confirmed, according to a report.
Rumors about the Risers apparent exit from the league spread when Bai Shipping, the owner of the franchise, wrote to the Commissioner’s Office about its intentions to take a leave in the coming season.
Hermida has ensured Bataan’s participation in the next tournament. However, rumor has it that Lastimosa is heading out of the team.
Asked for an interview with Courtside Philippines about the team’s preparations for the next tournament, Hermida simply said that now is not the “perfect time to answer those questions.”
