Greg Slaughter is back on the news after Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel head coach Tim Cone revealed on the vodcast Coaches Unfiltered that the 32-year old Fil-Am has been incommunicado.
“We’ve tried to contact him a couple of times. I tried to contact him and he hasn’t responded. We don’t know if he’s going to come back,” explained Cone.
The 2-time Grand Slam-winning mentor added that he heard from a third party that the 2014 PBA Rookie of the Year is planning to tryout for an NBA G League team.
Slaughter neither confirmed nor denied the disclosure and instead recalled the “strange” moment he experienced when his contract lapsed last January.
“I was not offered a deal by Ginebra even after my contract expired at the end of January. I found it strange because previous contract dealings I was well informed ahead of time,” claimed the 7-foot center out of the Ateneo de Manila University during an interview with Sun Star Cebu.
Despite the apparent misunderstanding with team management, Slaughter is not ruling out a future reunion with the Gin Kings.
“I am open to returning to the PBA in the future. I love the fans who have supported me through everything and the ‘Never Say Die’ spirit will always be a part of me. Of course, I am open to playing for Ginebra in the future.”
