MANILA--In a shocking turn of events, Saigon Heat has announced that it waived its heritage import Joshua Munzon on Monday, the ABL announced on its Twitter account.
Languishing at the cellar of the standings, the Vietnamese ballclub has no other recourse but to cut its high-flying 6'4" Fil-Am guard despite putting up monster numbers since signing up for them.

Munzon had a hand in their solitary win of the season, scoring a career-high 34 points and snatched the ball six times in their win at home against the Kaohsiung Truth last Jan. 14.

Last Friday, he was the Heat's second leading scorer with 20 markers and had 4 steals, one of them ended in a dunk that wowed the Olivarez crowd in his first game in the country.

Before he was released, Munzon averaged 18 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists.

The ABL also announced that the top-ranked Singapore Slingers also made a change as well, releasing point guard Alli Austria and signed Rolando Gardner in his place.
