Robert Bolick Considers PBA Comeback

In a low-key homecoming, Filipino basketball sensation Robert Bolick has quietly returned to the Philippines after parting ways with the Japanese B.League Division 2 team, Fukushima Firebonds. His agent, Marvin Espiritu, confirmed the news and disclosed that Bolick himself sought his release from the Japanese squad, resulting in the termination of his two-year contract with the Firebonds.

Speaking to The Manila Times on Friday, Espiritu shared, “Robert arrived last night (Thursday), and he’s currently settling in.”

While Bolick’s next career move is yet to be determined following the abrupt end of his B.League journey, Espiritu suggested that all signs point towards a possible return to the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). Bolick’s rights are still owned by NorthPort, who drafted him third overall in the 2018 PBA Draft.

Espiritu explained, “An option could be the PBA, and the first contact point is NorthPort since they still hold his rights. The PBA is likely the priority given his presence in the Philippines.”

Espiritu further disclosed that Bolick’s request to exit his contract with Fukushima was primarily due to personal reasons, specifically his wife Cassandra’s pregnancy. The parting with the Japanese team was amicable, with no major issues involved.

Should Bolick decide to make a comeback with NorthPort, it would significantly enhance the team’s chances of contending for the PBA Commissioner’s Cup championship. Under the guidance of coach Bonnie Tan, NorthPort has been assembling a new core of young talent, featuring players like Arvin Tolentino, JM Calma, and promising rookies Zavier Lucero, Brent Paraiso, and Fran Yu.

Bolick, a three-time NCAA champion, had a stellar season in the PBA last year, averaging 20.4 points, 6.1 assists, and 5.0 rebounds in over 38 minutes of action across 29 games. His potential return to the PBA will generate excitement among fans and could position NorthPort as a formidable contender in the upcoming season.
