Alaska signs Octavius Ellis as Commissioner’s Cup reinforcement

The 12-import cast in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup is now complete.

After several weeks of uncertainty, Alaska coach Alex Compton announced on Thursday night that the Aces are set to parade Octavius Ellis as their reinforcement in the import-spiced mid-season tourney that gets going next week.

Listed 6-foot-10, 23-year-old, former University of Cincinnati standout joined the NBA Rookie Draft last year, but went undrafted. He last played for Mornar Bar in the Adriatic League.

Ellis, a proud cousin of Indiana Pacers guard Monta, is expected to arrive in Manila on Thursday evening, with Compton personally picking him up from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. – FOX Sports Asia
