    San Miguel won, 116-90, to even the series.

    WHILE it remains uncertain that the PBA can hold a second conference, several teams are already preparing to see action.

    Phoenix and Rain or Shine are now looking for candidates for imports, although getting a commitment from agents and players this early would be an issue.

    “The challenge to that is hindi pa rin namin alam kung tutuloy. Hindi ka masyadong makapag-commit sa mga agents kasi may mga opportunities din sa iba,” said Phoenix coach Topex Robinson.

    Phoenix did not make it to the Philippine Cup quarterfinals, with Ginebra winning the play-in match.

    Rain or Shine, on the other hand, reached the round of eight where it was swept by Magnolia.

    “We’re starting to compile our short list of imports but no final decision yet until we’ve discussed our options with management,” said Elasto Painters coach Chris Gavina.

    SEEKING redemption after an early exit from the PBA Philippine Cup, Barangay Ginebra is planning to being back an old reliable reinforcement if the league is able to hold a second conference this season.

    Justin Brownlee is the top choice for the Gin Kings for the import-laced tournament.

    The 33-yearold Brownlee, who led Barangay Ginebra to three championships, said earlier this year he is just a phone call away.

    Coach Tim Cone confirmed the team is looking to bring Brownlee back.
