Cebuano wingman Ron Dennison has been given a fresh one-year contract by the Blackwater Bossing.
A product of the University of the Visayas high school basketball program, the 6-foot-2 two-guard has carved out a name for himself in the pro ranks as a relentless defensive stopper who is willing to do what it takes to halt the opposing team’s best guards.
Blackwater took notice of this and as such, gave the Cebuano a contract extension on Monday. Present during the contract signing was Dennison’s agent, PJ Pilares of the Titan Management Group and Blackwater team manager, Jacob Nunez.
Dennison was selected 21st overall during the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft by the Phoenix Fuel Masters. He was then traded to Blackwater in exchange for Cebuano point guard Brian Heruela.
Blackwater head coach Nash Racela is fond of Dennison’s defensive prowess and underscored his importance to the Bossing’s fortunes moving forward.
“Dennison's defense was a given in our bubble stint, making him our top perimeter stopper. That and the intensity he brings to the game will be valuable to our team," Racela said in a talk with PBA Rush.
Dennison put up decent numbers in the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup. The 27-year old averaged 3.73 points, 3.64 rebounds, 1.18 assists, and nearly a steal per contest. (JNP)
