    The tweet, predictably, drew several responses from fans who apparently approve of the high-flying American import to become a naturalization candidate for Gilas Pilipinas.

    If ever, McCullough will become the third import in the ongoing PBA Commissioner's Cup to be the subject of possible naturalization for the national team.

    Ginebra import Justine Brownlee's naturalization papers, in fact, are now in Congress, although moving at a slow pace. TNT KaTropa import Terrence Jones has also ignited the same talk for his fine play.

    Currently, former NBA player Andray Blatche is Gilas' naturalized player for the coming 2019 Fiba World Cup. Fil-foreigners Stanley Pringle and Christian Standhardinger have also been tapped for the same role during the World Cup qualifiers.
