The 6-foot-6 journeyman’s career will be revived by a new team which expressed interest in his services – the Powerade Tigers.
JB Baylon, Powerade’s board governor and current PBA Board vice chairman, confirmed to InterAKTV that they will finalize a deal with Adducul on Wednesday.
“He’s going to sign a one-year contract with us,” said Baylon in an online interview.
“In effect, we’re getting Adducul to address our immediate need for a big guy.”
A proven winner, Adducul had collected championships from almost every team he played for – from the San Sebastian Stags in the NCAA, the all-amateur national team, the Manila Metrostars in the now defunct Metropolitan Basketball Association, the Welcoat Painters in the PBL to the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings and the Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants in the PBA,
Adducul will try to restore a career that was slowed down by a shocking ailment – a bout against throat cancer that was discovered a few years ago.
But Powerade is one team willing to give the player another chance and the lack of big men in the squad will give Adducul a good opportunity to prove his worth.
