The NLEX Road Warriors will be alloting spots for bruising free agent frontliner Mike Miranda and sharpshooter Ronjay Buenafe for the upcoming season, according to coach Yeng Guiao.

Miranda caught the fancy of the temperamental mentor while working out for the team. The 6-foot-5 center/forward will fill the spot vacated by Enrico Villanueva who just retired at the end of last season.

“For somebody na hindi naman nagagamit sa ibang teams, Mike has been playing well for us. He will take over the spot of Rico who just retired,” said Guiao.

“I think he will play a big role for us considering the fact that Asi (Taulava) is already retiring, JR (Quinahan) not getting any younger and si Raul (Soyud), kailangan pang lutuin.”

Buenafe has also inked a one-year deal with NLEX, according to his agent Danny Espiritu.

The veetran guard will now reunite him with his old coach Guiao. They won a championship with Rain or Shine in 2012.
