Alaska solidified its intention to make Jeron Teng the future of the franchise by signing him to a three-year contract extension Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.

Teng inked on the dotted line in the presence of Alaska team governor Dickie Bachmann, sports development and public relations manager CK Kanapi-Daniolco and his agent Danny Espiritu.

The 26-year-old has been one of Alaska’s key players since being taken fifth overall in the 2017 PBA Draft.

He is coming off averages of 11.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 12 games during the PBA Philippine Cup bubble inside Angeles University Foundation Sports and Cultural Center.

By re-upping Teng, the Aces are hoping to do the same with muscular forward Vic Manuel.

Manuel is still negotiating with Alaska management in hopes of having a favorable deal.

The veteran cager initially voiced his desire to be traded but it appears that both parties are close to an agreement.

Alaska also made some moves to improve its roster by recently adding MPBL star Gab Banal and free agent center Yousef Taha.
