    Justin Brownlee, who has played in Italy and Mexico, adds the Philippines to his basketball resume.

    JUSTIN Brownlee is on the way to Manila and is skipping some personal commitments to be able to join Ginebra.

    Player agent Sheryl Reyes told Spin.ph that Brownlee has signed a contract and expected to arrive on Thursday.

    “Ok na ang contract niya,” said Reyes, who is in Las Vegas to scout other potential talents.

    “He skipped his son’s summer graduation to take the job and be there in the Philippines as soon as possible,” she said.

    “He will fly his son and fiancé after ten days.”

    Brownlee was tapped to replace Paul Harris, who injured his hand in Ginebra’s 93-84 win against the Globalport.

    Reyes said Ginebra coach Tim Cone had Brownlee, a product of St. John’s Red Storm in the Big East, on his radar all along.

    “When I presented my roster (of imports) to coach Tim and recommended Brownlee, I was surprised that coach Tim said he wanted Brownlee way back pa. I think he saw him in one of his scouting trips here,” said Reyes.

    “Justin is also a good friend of Paul Harris,” she added.

    Undrafted in the 2011 NBA rookie pool, Brownlee played for the New York Knicks in the summer league and later shone in the NBA D-League, averaging 25.7 points, 11.5 rebounds and 9.1 assists for the Erie Bayhawks in 2014.
