Imports measure up in PBA

January 26, 2015

MANILA, Philippines - The tape measure awaits eight imports still to be sized up before being declared eligible to play in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup starting tomorrow. So far, only five imports have been measured and one was disqualified for failing to make the limit. The other imports or those who are now in town will be measured in the PBA office today. In the queue are Meralco’s Josh Davis, Barangay Ginebra’s Michael Dunigan, Alaska’s D. J. Covington, Globalport’s Calvin (C. J.) Leslie, NLEX’ Al Thornton and Blackwater’s Chris Charles.

Cleared to play are Rain Or Shine’s 6-8 1/16 Rick Jackson, Kia’s 7-2 3/ 4 Peter John Ramos, Barako Bull’s 7-0 1/2 Solomon Alabi and Talk ‘N’ Text’s 6-6 15/16 Richard Howell. Globalport’s would-be import Rod Benson was measured at 6-9 1/8 when the limit for all the teams, except the last four placers in the Philippine Cup, is 6-9. There is no limit for the imports of the last four placers which are No. 9 Barako Bull, No. 10 NLEX, No. 11 Kia and No. 12 Blackwater.

Purefoods will be reinforced by Daniel Orton but the former University of Kentucky forward is still playing in the Chinese league. Coach Tim Cone has recalled Marqus Blakely to suit up on an interim basis as the Hotshots are set to make their second conference debut on Jan. 30. Orton may not be available until the first week of February. If Blakely is Cone’s pick to play for the meantime, he will also report for measurement today....
