Rafi Reavis is ready to suit up for Magnolia in the resumption of the 2021 PBA Governors’ Cup.
The 44-year old Reavis, who missed the initial stage of the season-ending conference due to a league ruling on unvaccinated players, arrived from the US on the first week of January and immediately buckled down to work.
“Arrived here first week of January and he already joined our workouts and practices,” said Hotshots head coach Chito Victolero.
Despite his absence, the team was still able to compile an impressive 3-0 win-loss records with victories over Terrafirma, Rain or Shine and Manila Clasico rival Brgy. Ginebra.
The Hotshots, who are powered by former Alaska reinforcement Mike Harris, return to action on Friday, February 11 against the dangerous TNT Tropang Giga who are currently struggling with an even 2-2 record after coming off a victorious Philippine Cup campaign.
Up next for the 2014 PBA Grand Slam champions are NLEX on the 16th and Phoenix Super LPG on the 19th.
Aside from Reavis, also making a debut for the league-leading Hotshots is newly acquired shooting guard Adrian Wong. The 26-year old Wong, who was immediately picked up from free agency after being released by the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, recently inked a two-year deal with the team.
