Phil Handy, an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Lakers, will exercise with Converge as part of the FiberXers’ preseason preparation for the next PBA season.

On Wednesday night, during the FiberXers’ PBA on Tour match versus TNT, Handy was clearly in the back of the bench.

Converge deputy team manager Jacob Lao and Frank Lao, one of the club’s fans, according to head coach Aldin Ayo, made it possible for the training to take place.

This week, Handy will work with the group at some point.

He is a visitor, and he will exercise with the group, Ayo stated.

Throughout his time in the NBA, most notably with the Lakers, Handy is renowned for his work with player development. As an associate coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, the Toronto Raptors in 2019, and the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020, he bagged an NBA championship.
