It will be an early – and long – vacation for the Beermen ahead of the final conference in the season, as they will be given a five-week break before reuniting on June 6 for their first day of practice for the Governors' Cup.

Reid vows to be ready for Governors' Cup

May 02, 2016

 Arizona Reid scored 25 points for San Miguel. Photo courtesy of PBA Media BureauMANILA, Philippines – Arizona Reid's return to the San Miguel Beermen proved to be a brief one as they were eliminated by the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in Game 4 of their 2016 PBA Commissioner's Cup semi-finals series on Sunday.
