After losing key players to free agency, Terrafirma finally got some good news after Isaac Go signed a two-year deal with the expansion team.
The 6-foot-7 center out of Ateneo de Manila University, who served as team captain of Gilas Pilipinas for the last two years, signed the contract in the presence of Dyip governor Bobby Rosales, coaches Johndel Cardel and Ronald Tubid along with Go’s agent PJ Pilares of Titan Management Group.
The sports agency announced the signing via their Instagram account.
“Number 1 pick Isaac Go has signed 2 years,” wrote TMG along with a photo of Go in Terrafirma jersey.
Cardel, meanwhile, was obviously relieved after the Jose Alvarez-owned franchise came to terms with the sweet shooting big man.
“Good news talaga,” said Cardel. “Two years ang pinirmahan.”
Go, however, would have to settle for limited minutes in his debut game which is scheduled on Saturday, February 12, against Blackwater.
“Baka sundutin ko lang kasi bukas (Friday) pa lang siya mag-i-start maki-practice sa amin,” stressed Cardel.
“Bukas bibigyan lang namin siya ng mga plays na familiar na siya. Next Saturday pa ulit ang laro namin (against Alaska) so may additional time para mas maging acclimatized siya sa amin.”
The Dyip earlier lost Matt Ganuelas-Rosser who opted to return home to TNT while Roosevelt Adams chose to try his luck in the Japan B.League.
