The 35-year-old forward from Tanza, Cavite will have a couple of years more in the PBA as he signs what looks like a 2-year deal with the team who acquired him last season via trade, the Meralco Bolts.
Facebook post of CEO of Virtual Playground Co. Charlie Dy reads
RDO @teamrdo still "bolting-in" with @meralcoboltsofficial @paolotrillo #PBA #2Years #MeralcoBolts#VirtualPlayground #Basketball #Family
Ranidel De Ocampo was the 4th overall pick in 2004 by the FedEx Express. He played for four years with the team who drafted him until he got traded to Talk n Text for Don Allado. From 2008 to 2017 he became one of the staples of Talk n Text and was instrumental to the team championship runs. He has compiled a total of 6 championships with 2 finals MVP during his years with TNT.
Now with Meralco Bolts, he will get another chance to play major minutes as the Bolts do not have the luxury of height in his position. Aside from Bryan Facundo who stands at an identical 6ft 6 inch with Ranidel, there is no one else on the Bolts roster that is taller than them, not even the centers.
