Hotshots enlist hulking Cinmeon Bowers as Governors’ Cup reinforcement

After failing to enlist former Best Import Marqus Blakely, Star decided to tap wide-bodied former Auburn Tigers standout Cinmeon Bowers as reinforcement for the season-ending PBA Governors Cup set to start on July 15.

Bowers, who weighs over 250 pounds, could easily give the solid inside presence for a Hotshots side that made back-to-back semifinal finishes this season.

Star team governor Rene Pardo said the athletic Blakely decided to pursue his draft application as an import in the Korean Basketball League, thus deciding to bring in Bowers.

A noted rebounder and inside operator, the 24-year-old Bowers is expected to arrive over the weekend in time for Star’s first practice for the Governors’ Cup next Monday.

Pardo hopes Bowers could be the man for the job, though they are open to change if ever. – FOX Sports Asia
