MCKENZIE Moore is set for a Philippine return as he's set to don the TnT Katropa jersey in the East Asia League Terrific 12 in Macau next month.
Moore will team up with former NBA player KJ McDaniels in reinforcing the Katropa for the Sept. 17-22 meet featuring top pro ballclubs from the Philippines, China, Japan, and South Korea.
The 27-year-old Moore was part of the Mighty Sports team that won the annual Jones Cup tournament in Taipei last month.
TnT team manager Gabby Cui confirmed the signing of the Santa Rosa, California native for the week-long tournament.
Moore is set to arrive in the country on Sept. 1 when the Katropa begin to practice for the Terrific 12 and the PBA Governors Cup.
The Katropa are coming off a runner-up finish against the San Miguel Beermen in the last Commissioners Cup.
The Beermen are also competing in the annual tournament featuring imports Dez Wells and Lester Prosper.
Blackwater Elite completes the entry of the Philippine side, with the team parading towering Alex Stepheson and Aaron Fuller under the two-import format of the meet.
