Uyloan says D-League stint with Cignal ‘rejuvenated’ his career

For Jonathan Uyloan playing somewhere else is better than not playing at all.

With Meralco set to put him in the reserve list, the sharpshooting guard made the bold decision and asked the management to allow him to play for Cignal HD in the 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup.

“I asked Meralco if I could play with Cignal and everything worked out well. Some people may think it’s a demotion, but for me, it’s a blessing. I have a contract with Meralco and I have a contract with Cignal. I was pretty much working two jobs,” he said.

Turns out, it was the right move with Uyloan going as far as citing this stint with the Hawkeyes as one of the best decisions he’s ever made.

“It was probably the best move of my career. It made me love basketball more,” he said. “I came from the PBL before, and I was a practice player for Rain or Shine. The move helped me go back to where I came from. I wasn’t the superstar, I had to work my way up, so going back to Cignal rejuvenated my basketball career.”
