MANILA—After eight years, Danny Ildefonso could be making a PBA comeback.

The veteran center was signed to a player contract by the Converge FiberXers, a memo from the PBA stated.

The memo added that Ildefonso will be eligible to suit up for the FiberXers "effective immediately."

"Nakalineup na siya," FiberXers head coach Aldin Ayo, who first spilled the beans through an Instagram story, told Dugout Philippines on Thursday upon confirming the news.

The 46-year-old center could make his PBA comeback on Friday when Converge takes on Meralco, interestingly the last team he played for before retiring initially in 2015.

"Kaya pa niya sumabay sa mga mas bata," Ayo added.

Ildefonso spent the early part of his PBA career with San Miguel before moving to Meralco.

Ildefonso is currently an assistant coach for the FiberXers, one of the personnel who was absorbed into the team when they bought the Alaska Aces franchise last year.
