After acquiring Jericho Cruz, NLEX releases Mac Tallo


Cebuano guard Mac Tallo has been released by NLEX, just a day after the Road Warriors acquired battle-tested guard Jericho Cruz in a trade.

NLEX made the announcement on social media on Tuesday.

Tallo was no longer with the Road Warriors at Tuesday’s practice as Cruz trained for the first time with the team.

“Mac Tallo has been released by the NLEX Road Warriors and will begin playing in another league. Our management wishes him all the best as he continues his basketball career,” wrote the team on its official Twitter account @ArangkadaNLEX.

The statement didn’t mention the league but sources said Tallo has gained interest from MPBL teams.
