Sumunod kay Ping! PJ Simon joins Nueva Ecija in MPBL Invitational


Another Purefoods legend is set to make a basketball comeback.

This time, PJ Simon has agreed to sign with Nueva Ecija Rice Vanguards for the upcoming MPBL Invitational on December.

Head coach Charles Tiu revealed the development on his Twitter account.

“I would also like to welcome PJ Simon to our team,” said Tiu.

Simon, who played his entire career in Purefoods, announced his retirement less than a year ago.

He won eight crowns with the Purefoods franchise.

Just less than 24 hours ago, Marc Pingris also came out of retirement to join the Rice Vanguards.

Simon and Pingris will team up once again, this time in a different team and league.
