Denzel Bowles, the reigning Commissioner’s Cup Best Import who led the B-MEG Llamados to a title last season, will be back to suit up for the San Mig Coffee Mixers.
San Miguel Corporation executive Noli Eala confirmed the news to InterAKTV.
“Bowles will be back and will arrive on Sunday,” wrote Eala in a text message.
Without Bowles, San Mig Coffee has stumbled to a 0-2 start in the current tournament. Matt Rogers, the team’s original reinforcement this season, missed the team’s first game before struggling in his debut against Petron.
Bowles’ return was delayed after problems securing his release from his last team, the Zhejiang Golden Bulls in the Chinese Basketball Association.
He will make his debut this season on Friday against the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters.
