There will be significant changes in the coming season of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League as it opened its door on Fil-foreign players.
Starting this season, teams can now get two Fil-foreign players and include them in their 20-man roster (15 to play).
These Fil-foreign players, however, should not exceed the 6-foot-4 height limit.
Senator Manny Pacquiao, MPBL founder and chief executive officer, approved the idea of having an additional Fil-foreign players.
League commissioner Kenneth Duremdes, however. clarified that these Fil-foreign players cannot play at the same time.
“Only one Fil-foreign player at a time,” said Duremdes, who also added that the league has approved the application of Mindoro to become the latest expansion squad.
