Converge gets NBA vet

Converge made another major move, tapping Quincy Miller as its import for the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Commissioner’s Cup set to unwrap next month.

The 29-year-old Miller will be suiting up as the FiberXers’ reinforcement on their bid for a deep playoff run on the team’s first-ever import-spiced conference.

The 6-foot-10 slotman is tipped to provide offensive firepower, having played for the National Basketball Association (NBA) and numerous professional clubs across the world.

The former Baylor College standout was drafted 38th overall by the Denver Nuggets in the 2012 NBA Draft, before playing for the Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons in 2015.

Miller also saw action in the G-League, where he was selected as part of the league’s all star team during his time with Kings affiliate club Reno Bighorns.

He also played in several clubs in Serbia, Israel, Germany and Portugal before his latest stint with Nacional in the Liga Uruguaya de Basquetbol in Uruguay.

Miller averaged 13.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and three assists during his time with Nacional, but the squad failed to reach the playoffs with an 11-15 win-loss card.

With Aldin Ayo now taking over as the latest head coach of the FiberXers, Miller is expected to immediately gel with the young squad composed of Jeron Teng, Abu Tratter, RK Ilagan and Allyn Bulanadi.

Converge made it to the playoffs of the ongoing Philippine Cup, but was immediately booted out by top seed San Miguel Beer in the quarterfinals.
