IT seems having an NBA pedigree is becoming a norm among PBA imports.
PHOENIX is the latest team to ride the trend, tapping the services of Alonzo Gee in a bid to turn its campaign around in the Governors Cup.
Gee is already in the country and will take the place of long-time Phoenix import Eugene Phelps, according to a team insider.
The 32-year-old Gee had an extensive NBA experience having stops at Washington, Cleveland, Denver, Portland and New Orleans.
Phoenix management however, said it will stil reassessed its stand whether to replace Phelps or not.
"We'll assess him (Gee) first," said a Phoenix insider.
A product of Alabama, Gee is the latest former NBA player to see action in the season-ending meet after KJ McDaniels, and Martin Harris.
The TnT Katropa are currently on too of the standings with a 7-0 record, whlle the Road Warrios occupy second place with a 5-1 mark.
Phelps has been wiith the Fuel Masters since the 2016 Governors Cup under former coach Ariel Vanguardia.
While he may have had success with the franchise, Phelps has struggled of late as the Fuel Masters tumbled to a 2-5 (win-loss) record.
