    RAIN or Shine parades its new import on Wednesday when it takes on Magnolia in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    The Elastopainters take on the Hotshots at 4:30 p.m.

    Chicago State product Carl Montgomery was brought in as replacement for Denzel Bowles, who suffered an injury in his knee in their 86-84 win over Alaska.

    Rain or Shine coach Caloy Garcia expressed confidence the 6-foot-8 Montgomery is a good fit to the team.

    “We can be a quicker team. Nagfifit naman siya sa quickness ng mga players,” said Garcia.
