Rain or Shine brings back Duke Crews as replacement for Shawn Taggart

The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters are bringing back Duke Crews as import as they try to regain their winning form for the latter stages of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

Rain or Shine governor Mamerto Mondragon confirmed through online reports the return of Crews to replace the struggling Shawn Taggart after the squad dropped four of its last five games following a 3-0 start in the midseason tournament.

Crews will make his second stint for the team co-owned by Raymond Yu and Terry Que, having played for the Elasto Painters in the 2011 Commissioner’s Cup.

He’ll be coming over after playing for the CLS Knights Surabaya of the Indonesian Basketball League. Crews also had a notable stint with the San Miguel Beermen in the ASEAN Basketball League in 2012. – Manila Bulletin
