James Yap inks 3-year extension with Rain or Shine
James Yap is set for the long haul with Rain or Shine after signing a three-year extension on Thursday.
The two-time MVP signed his fresh contract with team owner Raymond Yun and team governor Atty. Mamerto Mondragon present at the Elasto Painters’ office.
Yap, who spent his first 12 years with the Purefoods franchise, became part of the Elasto Painters roster in 2016 in a direct swap for Paul Lee.
“First of all I would like to thank the Lord and my Rain or Shine family,” said Yap in an Instagram post. “Boss Raymond Yu, Boss Terry Que, Atty. Mondragon, Mr. Edison Oribiana, coach Caloy [Garcia], teammates, my family, friends, and to all my fans.”
Despite being 36 at the time of his signing, Yap is still considered as one of the more lethal shooting guards in the league.
Last season, Yap averaged 10.3 points on 39% field goal shooting and 36.3% from deep along with 2.6 rebounds.
