Allein Maliksi is set to get a 2-year deal worth 10 million pesos with Blackwater Elite
At 30 years old, the 10 million deal he is getting may be his last big paycheck and while it seems like good money, a longer-term contract may be much more beneficial.
Allein Maliksi was acquired recently by Blackwater in a trade that involved Bambam Gamilida and Kyle Pascual. Maliksi, whose contract expired is technically open to signing with any teams but Blackwater is not taking any chances and had offered the prime scorer with a 10 million 2-year contract.
Maliksi instantly became one of the primary gunners of Blackwater and was one of the key players responsible for the playoffs run of Blackwater's last conference.
The 4x Champion and All-Star is laying his 7th season in the PBA. Maliksi has played with Barako Bull Energy, Barangay Ginebra and San Mig (Star Hotshots) and Blackwater Elite.
