Fresh off winning the Commissioner’s Cup, the Alaska Aces have already set their sights on the next tournament.

In its quest for back-to-back titles, Alaska has tapped former New Mexico star Wendel McKines to reinforce the team for the Governors’ Cup.

McKines is coming off an impressive stint in France, averaging 17.3 points and 8.9 rebounds while playing for Rouen.

Alaska coach Luigi Trillo confirmed the news shortly after leading his team to a three-game sweep of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.
