Ex-NBA players headline cast in PBA Governor's Cup
Several former NBA players are set to see action in the Philippine Basketball Association Governor's Cup, which starts on Sunday.
Each team is allowed to field one import below 6'5" in the season-ending tournament.
Suiting up for their respective teams are former NBA players Cedric Bozeman, Eddie Basden and Rashad McCants.
Bozeman, who played 23 games for the Atlanta Hawks in 2006-07, will play for Ginebra.
Basden, meanwhile, will suit up for Petron Blaze. The former Chicago Bull was supposed to play for Alaska last season but failed to make the then height limit of 6'4".
McCants, who was picked 14th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2005 NBA Draft, will suit up for Powerade. He was part of the University of North Carolina team that won the 2005 NCAA championship along with Marvin Williams, Sean May, Raymond Felton, Jawad Williams and David Noel, who also once played as an import in the PBA.
Other imports seeing action in the tournament are Zach Graham (Air21), Jason Forte (Alaska), Marqus Blakely (B-Meg), Jamine Peterson (Barako), Juan Pattillo (Meralco), Jamelle Cornley (Rain or Shine) and Paul Harris (Talk N Text). Forte and Harris have played in the league before.
