In the off-season, the Ginebra fans were shaken by the announcement of the retirement of veteran forward Joe Devance and Marc "the spark" Caguiao one-half of the original fast and the furious duo in Ginevra's golden age back in the 2000s.
The news came as a shock to people about Joe Devance's retirement as the player can still make an impact on the hardwood. It was even rumored that head coach Tim Cone offered Joe Devance a job as an assistant coach, although Joe Devance declined.
The veteran forward has been with coach Tim in Magnolia, well we can safely say losing Joe Devance is like losing coach Tim's right-hand man. Marc Caguiao calls it quits after a long and glorious career in the PBA. The former league MVP took some time to assess his situation according to Team Manager Al Francis Chua and decided to hand the laces up.

The star guard is said to be waiting for a better offer from his team, as he wants a larger pay and a short stint. Whilst Nlex Roadwarriors star Kiefer Ravena, after his stint in Japan. Ravena is said to take home $40,000 in his return to Japan next season. Ravena wishes to help his mother's team in competing in the Philippine Cup. Still, some concerns are waving. An agreement both from Ravena and his team must be accepted and it shall be approved by the Commissioner.
Ravena wants a one-conference deal and his team wants at the very least a year for him to play in the country. As Homer Sayson said, this is a no-brainer for him, and try not to risk that hefty payday.
