The Meralco Bolts will not be the only team that has managed to land an international talent in the upcoming PBA 3×3 tournament.

Joining Jason Brickman for the first-ever 3×3 season of the PBA is one of the most exciting players under coach Jimmy Alapag in Alab Pilipinas, the athletic guard Jeremiah Gray.

Gray was also one of those Fil-Am players who failed to submit the last documents in their bid to enter the 2021 PBA Rookie draft.

With the failed opportunity in entering the 5v5 professional league, Gray took the offer from the TNT Tropang Giga and will do his best to bring the championship for the franchise.

TNT team manager Gabby Cui is already excited to work with the 6-foot-6 guard who showed flashes of a young Tracy McGrady during his Alab stint.

Athletic, laterally quick, a good cutter, and a good perimeter and three-point shooter, Gray was one of coach Alapag’s main snipers in the team and is always on the floor during crunch time.

Aside from Gray’s offensive artillery, his tremendous patience when it comes to defense will also be one of the keys to his success in the big league.

Just like Brickman, Gray’s debut will be highly-anticipated as he tries to impress scouts ahead of the 2022 PBA rookie draft.
