MANILA, Philippines – Aaron Black has signed a contract extension with Meralco Bolts ahead of the 47th PBA season.
Black has a two-year extension, according to 25-year-old handler Espiritu Manotok Basketball Management (EMBM).
Black wrote on Instagram, “I am humbled by the opportunities that the high man has brought before me.” This game has been a blessing indeed. (Meralco Bolts) Looking forward to the years ahead.
The Ateneo standout, which was drafted 18th overall in the 2019 PBA Rookie Draft, proved its worth to Meralco by winning the Outstanding Rookie Award in the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup Bubble.

Black and the Bolts will be back in action when the new PBA season begins on June 5th.
