MANILA—San Juan has just lost one of its pillars.
The reigning Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League champion announced on Wednesday that it has just waived Mac-Mac Cardona.
"As we start the year 2020, the San Juan Knights-Go For Gold team will now move forward without one of our veteran presence, Mac-Mac Cardona, who resigned from the team due to personal reasons," the team said in a statement. The Knights did not further divulge on Cardona's real reason behind leaving them.
A former PBA star, the 38-year-old guard was one of the key guys of the San Juan squad that captured the MPBL title last season.
"Mac-Mac has been an integral part of the San Juan Knights-Go For Gold powered by Cherry Mobile and instrumental to our championship as one of the leaders of the team," the Knights further stated.
The statement concluded, "We wish Mac-Mac the best of luck as he pursues another chapter of his journey. He will always be a part of the San Juan Knights history."
