Ba-bye Na! Vic Manuel shows gratitude to Alaska by bidding farewell


Despite the fact that he requested a trade out of the Alaska Aces, Vic Manuel still has nothing but gratitude for the team that took care of him for seven years.

The “Muscle Man”, together with Aces’ first round (no.7) and second round pick, will now be heading to Phoenix in exchange for Brian Heruela, as well as the Fuel Masters’ first round pick (no. 6) and second round pick (no. 4).

The Zambales-native still took on Instagram to bid farewell to Alaska by uploading several pictures of his 2014 Finals stint.

“My HOME! My FAMILY for almost 7 years! Thank you Alaska Aces! Wish you a goodluck and all the best! Same GOAL! New JOURNEY!” Manuel wrote.
