Career highlights and awards

Jervy A. Cruz (born September 9, 1986) is a Filipino professional basketball player currently playing for the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).

A former Most Valuable Player in the UAAP, Cruz was one of the reasons why the UST Growling Tigers pulled off an upset over heavily favored Ateneo Blue Eagles in the 2006 UAAP finals.

Tabbed fifth overall in the rookie draft, Rain or Shine got a legitimate inside threat and eased the burden on Jay-R Reyes in that aspect. Cruz is undersized for his position but he has the skills to become efficient. He also has a decent outside shot.

Cruz was the third youngest player in the 2009-10 PBA season at only 23 years of age. He played 45 games and he averaged 6.4 points per game, 0.2 blocks per game, and 4.4 rebounds per game.

After six seasons for Rain or Shine he was sent initially to GlobalPort for Jewel Ponferada[2] but never played for them as he was traded after more than a month to Barako for Rico Maierhofer.[3]

Cruz was traded again by Barako to Ginebra in exchange for Rodney Brondial and a 2018 second round pick after only four games into the 2015-16 season.[4]
