Greg Slaughter got some additional help in preparation for his PBA return by working out with Barangay Ginebra San Miguel teammate Japeth Aguilar.

Instagram stories shared by Slaughter and Aguilar’s wife Cassy showed the two Ginebra big men taking part in a one-on-one scrimmage at the Upper Deck Sports Center in Ortigas where Ginebra usually holds its practices.

“Back in the lab (with) my twin!” Slaughter said in one of the IG stories he posted.

Ginebra coach Tim Cone confirmed in a Twitter response to a fan several weeks ago that Slaughter agreed to sign with Ginebra after a misunderstanding with management early last year prompted the 7-footer to leave for the United States.
