    NLEX is set to unleash original import choice Arnett Moultrie when it takes on Rain or Shine on Wednesday in the PBA Commissioner's Cup.

    Moultrie was Yeng Guiao's choice for the midseason conference but failed to suit for the Road Warriors in their debut against Columbian Dyip as he was tied down by commitments in the Bahrain league.

    But the 6-foot-10 former first-round pick of the Miami Heat in the 2013 NBA Draft is finally available to play for the Road Warriors on Wednesday, the team announced on its social media accounts.

    Moultrie, 27, takes over from Adrian Forbes, who had 26 points, 17 rebounds and five blocks in his league debut but couldn't save NLEX from falling to a lopsided 102-123 defeat on Saturday.

      Guiao said Moultrie, who averaged 3.6 rebounds and 3.1 points in 59 games with the Philadelphia 76ers from 2013 to 2014, brings the right skill set to the Road Warriors.

      "We had problems with his availability after his stint playing in Bahrain, but now is the right time and he has the right skill set to help the team," Guiao said.

      "Moultrie is a big man who can post up, step out and shoot a jump shot, can run the floor in transition, and is a very decent rebounder. So that skill set is really what we needed to enhance our success."
