Jeric Teng is back in the PBA.

The 26-year old forward, who last played for the Mahindra Floodbuster during the 2016-17 season, was plucked out of free agency by the GlobalPort Batang Pier now coached by Teng’s college mentor Pido Jarencio.

Jarencio was appointed as head coach anew of the Mikee Romero-owned franchise starting this season after Franz Pumaren took an indefinite leave of absence to focus on his coaching gig with the Adamson Falcons.

Teng and Jarencio were part of the UST team that barged into the Finals of UAAP Seasons 75 and 76 but unfortunately lost in both occasions to Ateneo and La Salle, respectively. The partnership also produced two other Final Four stints for the school, Seasons 72 and 74 with both ending in losses to Ateneo.

Teng, whose younger brother Jeron now plays for the Alaska Aces, was taken 12th overall by Rain or Shine during the 2013 PBA Rookie Draft. He spent 3 uneventful seasons with the team before getting waived. He was fortunate enough however to be part of the team’s 2016 Commissioner’s Cup conquest.

He played briefly for Mahindra but was waived as well.

Things are looking bright for the elder Teng however at GlobalPort with Jarencio knowing fully well how to utilize his skill set.
