MANILA, Philippines – Kiefer Ravena’s contract dispute with the PBA did not prevent the Japan B. League club Shiga Lakestars from including the Filipino shooting guard in its lineup.

The Lakestars announced their official roster for the upcoming 2021-22 B League season on Tuesday with Ravena as part of the 12-man roster.

“The average age at the start of the club is 26 years, which is the youngest line-up in the club’s history, but under the new HC Luis Gil Torres, the club as a whole will fight during the new season,” the club said in a statement.

Earlier this month, Shiga made a surprise announcement that it had signed Ravenna as its Asian import.

The move, however, hit a roadblock due to Ravenna’s pre-existing contract with the PBA’s NLEX team subject to the Uniform Player Contract (UPC) that prevents a player from playing in other leagues.

The 27-year-old point guard signed a three-year extension with the Road Warriors last September.
