PBA: Alab eyes Brownlee, Walker as imports

By Jerome Lagunzad

A pair of prolific PBA imports could find themselves in the Asean Basketball League with Tanduay-Alab Pilipinas which is determined to turn its fortunes around after a shaky start.

American Henry Walker, who previously suited up for Blackwater Elite, is being considered by team management to take over a vacant import spot after parting ways with well-traveled big man Reggie Okosa more than a week ago.

The 6-foot-6 Walker, who also played for three NBA teams, including the Miami Heat, could give Tanduay-Alab Pilipinas the needed firepower and leadership as well which he showed during the Elite’s solid playoff run in the last PBA Governors Cup.

Also getting strong interest from Alab management according to a report ran by online portal spin.ph is former Barangay Ginebra reinforcement Justine Brownlee.

Brownlee helped the Gin Kings complete a back-to-back title bid in the season-ending conference at the expense of Meralco Bolts.

The 6-foot-4 Brownlee, a big-time scorer and also a clutch performer, could make his entry to Alab Pilipinas at the expense of fellow PBA veteran Ivan Johnson, who’s currently dealing with back spasms.
