JUSTIN Brownlee is scheduled to arrive in Manila in a few days.
Brownlee, 33, has completed his travel documents and is scheduled to arrive on Nov. 25.
"Right now he's scheduled to come in on the 25th, but I think he's going to leaver earlier. Maybe this weekend, so we could have him either Monday or Tuesday," said coach Tim Cone on the Power & Play program hosted by former PBA Commissioner Noli Eala on Saturday.
Like the rest of the arriving imports, Brownlee will also undergo the mandated quarantine protocols before he finally gets to rejoin the Kings after almost two years since last winning the 2019 Governors Cup championship at the expense of rival Meralco Bolts.
