Bobby Ray Parks Jr. is expected to make his much-awaited pro debut with the Blackwater Elite in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup opener on May 19 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Elite will be taking on the Meralco Bolts in the first game of the doubleheader at 4:30 p.m.

The Bolts are being coached by Norman Black, Parks’ godfather. Incidentally, Parks had been rumored to a trade to Meralco early this year.

Parks, winner of three straight ABL MVPs, signed a one-year contract with the Elite after the Alab Pilipinas campaign ended.

Alaska, meanwhile, will face Columbian in the second game of the mid-conference opener at 6:45 p.m.
