MANILA, Philippines – Jeremy Tyler has played his last game for the TNT KaTropa.

TNT is set to replace the American import after four games, player agent Sheryl Reyes announced on Thursday morning.

"Unfortunately, with the turnout of events, TNT will replace Jeremy Tyler," she said on Twitter. "Thanks Jeremy, we wish you all the best."

The KaTropa went 3-1 with Tyler, but the import was far from dominant for TNT. He averaged only 12.25 points and 13.25 rebounds per game while playing 28.01 minutes per contest.

In his last game – a 110-110 loss to Alaska – Tyler had 16 points and 11 rebounds, shooting 6-of-15 from the field.

TNT has yet to announce a replacement for Tyler.

The KaTropa is the fourth team to change imports in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup, following Columbian Dyip, NLEX, and San Miguel Beer.
