    PHOENIX Pulse coach Louie Alas said it remains to be seen what RR Garcia and Davon Potts can bring to the Fuel Masters after signing the two in time for the Governors’ Cup.

    Alas admitted Garcia and Potts were signed by the team in order to address their injury depleted roster as well as the indefinite suspension of Calvin Abueva.

    The veteran coach is simply glad the Fuel Masters can finally train with a full roster.

    “May bago kaming na-pick up na players na feeling ko malaking tulong especially sa training namin because ‘yung mga previous training namin, kulang na kulang talaga ‘yung warm bodies namin,” Alas said on Wednesday after the team’s practice.

    “Sometimes, ang ikli ng practice, sometimes mahaba pero hindi quality. Ngayon, nkakapamili na ako kung ano dapat kong gawin. That’s good news sa aming lahat,” Alas said.


      Alas said he is still determining the specific roles Garcia and Potts when it comes to game situations.

      “’Yung sa game, I don’t know. It remains to be seen. Titignan ko pa kung ano talaga ‘yung pwede nilang i-add sa mga weakness namin,” said Alas.

      Garcia was picked up by Phoenix Pulse after an eight-month hiatus with TNT, and was able to move to a team after his contract with the KaTropa expired.

      Potts’ contract with Alaska also expired last month, but was able to find a team quickly even after a very brief stint with Basilan in the Chooks to Go Pilipinas 3x3 League.

      Alas said he is happy that Garcia is in shape, but thinks he still needs games to get back into rhythm.

      “Nakita ko na he is in great shape but not in game shape pa. Siguro, ilang games ang kailangan nyang daanan bago dumating sa talagang game shape,” said Alas.

      As for Potts, Alas hopes the former San Beda cager can regain his confidence following lean years with Alaska.

      “Si Davon, hindi masyadong na-utilize, kailangan mabalik ‘yung kumpiyansa niya,” said Alas.
