Following weeks of negotiations, Bobby Ray Parks has agreed to stay with TnT, a move that Katropa consultant Mark Dickel described as "awesome news."
The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) stressed that Mark Dickel's stint as Gilas Pilipinas coach is just on a short term basis and the process of finding a full-time mentor remains a priority.
Two-time Olympian and current TNT KaTropa consultant Mark Dickel has been asked to lead the campaign of Gilas Pilipinas Men for the upcoming first window of the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers as interim head coach.
Jayson Castro said he expects Bobby Ray Parks to bring new dimensions to the TNT lineup and help the KaTropa's quest to end a 4-year title drought in the PBA.
TNT may have appointed long-time assistant coach Bong Ravena, but it seems that he isn't calling the shots for the team most of the time.
TNT KaTropa scored their second straight victory at the expense of Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, 110-104, in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup in Passi City, Iloilo on Saturday.
