San Miguel has given Charles Rhodes his walking papers.
Not wanting to cut short its campaign in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, the Beermen have decided the replace the former Best Import awardee with Chris McCollough, a former NBA player.
Rhodes averaged 26 points, 13.71 rebounds, 2.71 assists and 2.43 rejections per game but could only lead the powerhouse San Miguel team to 2 wins in 7 outings.
The 6-foot-9 McCollough was drafted in the first round of the 2015 NBA Rookie Draft, 29th overall, by Brooklyn. He spent two years with the Nets and with its G-League affiliate, the Long Island Nets. He was later on traded to the Washington Wizards but failed to make his mark there as well. He played a total of 59 games in the NBA and had averages of 3.3 points, 1.9 rebounds.
He took his act to China in 2018 and played one season for the Shanxi Brave Dragons in the Chinese Basketball Association.
The 24-year old out of Syracuse University is fresh from a stint with the Brujos de Guayama, a Puerto Rican basketball team in the Baloncesto Superior Nacional. He attended the Beermen’s Tuesday practice and will make his debut on Friday, July 5 against the NLEX Road Warriors.
