MANILA--TNT is parting ways with Jeremy Tyler.

Sheryl Reyes, Tyler's agent, confirmed the development on Twitter on Thursday.

"Unfortunately with the turn out of events TNT will replace Jeremy Tyler. That was his last game. Thanks Jeremy we wish you all the best," Reyes stated.

Tyler struggled against Ginebra on May 6 despite a win for his team, only making two points.

He bounced back a bit the following Sunday against Alaska, but he only finished with 16 markers as TNT's 3-0 start was snapped in the process.

The KaTropa have yet to announce their replacement as of posting, opening up a possibility that they may play all-Filipino as they take on the still winless Blackwater Elite on Friday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
