    THE PBA has issued a summon to San Miguel veteran Arwind Santos for his controversial monkey taunt on TNT import Terrence Jones during Game Five of the Commissioner's Cup Finals on Wednesday night.

    PBA commissioner Willie Marcial confirmed he has summoned Santos to appear before him to air his side on the 'racial slur,' which has come under fire on social media.

    Santos didn't deny that he did the gesture but was quick to play down its implications, saying the act was part of the 'mind games' against the TNT import.

    The act, however, has come under fire from both players, officials and fans for its racist undertone.

    Jones himself said he found Santos' gesture "unacceptable" and urged the PBA to take "swift, significant action" against the SMB veteran.
