Robert Bolick will not be part of NorthPort’s roster when the 2021 PBA Governors’ Cup resumes on February 11.
The 26-year old former San Beda Red Lion, whose contract with the Batang Pier expired last January 31, could not come to terms with the team regarding an extension deal according to Tiebreaker Times sources closely monitoring the situation.
Bolick’s case is similar to that of Terrafirma’s Roosevelt Adams. The top overall pick of the 2019 draft turned down an extension offer from the Dyip and became a restricted free agent. He is now Japan-bound after committing to a Division 2 team in the B.League.
The 27-year old Fil-Am’s rights, however, are still with the Jose Alvarez-owned franchise should he decide to return to the league.
Bolick, the 3rd overall pick of the 2018 draft, has taken the cudgels for NorthPort for the past three seasons.
The 6-foor-1 combo guard submitted 13-game averages 17.2 points, 7.8 assists, and 6.7 rebounds during the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup.
He jacked up his numbers in the ongoing 2021 Governors’ Cup by dropping 20.5 points, dishing out 9.3 assists, and hauling down 5.3 rebounds in 42 minutes of action. The Batang Pier, however, are languishing in 11th place in the team standings with a 0-4 win-loss record.
The two parties have yet to yet to confirm the development as of posting time.
