PBA paves way for return of old topnotch imports

LOS ANGELES – Topnotch imports Justin Brownlee, Charles Rhodes, Ricardo Ratliffe and Allen Durham are likely to take their act in the PBA yet again in the coming season as the league board has decided to readopt its 2016-17 schemes for the 43rd PBA season set to begin December 17.

The board paved the way for the possible return of other PBA regulars Henry Walker and Eugene Phelps as they kept at 6-foot-10 the height ceiling for the Governors Cup imports and at 6-foot-5 the height limit for the Commissioner’s Cup reinforcements.

The local pro league is also implementing the same exciting formats used last season where San Miguel Beer emerged as the Philippine Cup and Commissioner’s Cup champ while Barangay Ginebra came through with a successful title defense in the Governors Cup.

This measure was resolved in the last PBA regular board meeting in Manila.

Still uncertain is whether the PBA Governors will be able push through with its set planning session at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles here on Tuesday.

With many resolutions yet to be resolved, some governors are now bracing for the possible postponement of the coming season.
