Greg Slaughter has not played for Barangay Ginebra since the team won the 2019-2020 PBA Governors' Cup championship

A familiar figures returns for Barangay Ginebra in its title-retention bid in the PBA Philippine Cup.

Head coach Tim Cone revealed veteran big man Greg Slaughter has signed a new contract with the Gin Kings ahead of the upcoming PBA season.

“[G]reg is signed,” Cone wrote on Twitter as a reply to a fan asking updates about the team.

After guiding the franchise to its first All-Filipino crown in more than a decade, Cone immediately expressed his desire to have the seven-foot Slaughter back on board.

“I would love to have Greg back on the team,” Cone said in December as Ginebra dispatched TNT in 5 games in the Philippine Cup finals.

Slaughter has not seen action for the Gin Kings since the team won the 2019-2020 Governors’ Cup as he took a hiatus from the PBA following the expiration of his contract.

Eyeing a PBA comeback, Slaughter apologized to the Ginebra management for any “misunderstanding or bad feelings” that may have stemmed from his decision to step away from professional basketball.

Slaughter recently got married to Schinina Juban. –
