MANILA--Ray-Ray Parks will play pro basketball this season after all.

After the NBA D-League's Westchester Knicks waived him, the 6-foot-4 combo guard accepted an offer to play for ABL newcomer Alab Pilipinas.

Parks first hinted at his return to the local basketball scene through a video tweet on Wednesday with caption "I'm coming home".

Alab then confirmed on its social media accounts on Friday night that the Gilas guard will indeed join the team for the upcoming ABL season, which begins exactly a week from now.

Alab's ABL journey, however, will not start until Day 2 of the season on Nov. 27, when the club hosts Singapore at the Alonte Sports Arena in Biñan.
