Meralco taps 3rd import

Meralco recruited another import who will serve as replacement of Johnny O’Bryant in the ongoing Philippine Basketball Association Commissioner’s Cup.

Bolts head coach Norman Black confirmed to Daily Tribune that they had already signed the replacement for O’Bryant, the National Basketball Association journeyman who failed to lead them to a strong start in this midseason conference.

The new import is already set to fly to Manila to see action against visiting team Bay Area on Friday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

But Black refused to divulge the name of their new reinforcement as part of their recruiting strategy.

“Until such time that he gets on board a plane, that’s the only time we can give his name,” Black, also one of the greatest imports to see action in the PBA, said in a telephone conversation.

“But yes, we will have a new import before Friday’s game against Bay Area.”

O’Bryant would have played his last game for the Bolts last Saturday, but the league was forced to cancel the match as tropical storm “Paeng” battered Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

He was supposed to see action anew after his replacement, Jessie Govan, was measured over the height limit of 6-foot-10, forcing the Bolts to send him home and scramble for another import.
