    BLAKELY WILL RETURN AS SAN MIG COFFEE IMPORT
    By Snow Badua Published: May/18/2013 4:54 PM

    MANILA - Marqus Blakely will be given the chance to close out an unfinished business with the San Mig Coffee Mixers in the season-ending Governors’ Cup.
    San Mig coach Tim Cone told Solar Sports Desk that they have decided to call back the high-flying Blakely to once more help the team’s cause.
    “He’s coming back. He’s arriving in July. We went to the finals with him (so we decided to again give him a call),” said the grand slam coach.
    “We went to a game 7 championship with him. We just fell short because he fouled out early in the fourth quarter, so we want to give him another opportunity,” added Cone.
    In his 2012 third conference campaign with the then BMEG Llamados, the 6-5, 220-lb forward registered impressive numbers of 22.36 points, 13.36 rebounds, 3.27 assists, 2.73 steals and 2.55 blocks per game.
    Unfortunately, the Mixers lost the crown to the Jamelle Cornley-led Rain or Shine Elastopainters, 4 games to 3.
    “He is a guy who brings chemistry to the team. We liked him. He has great work ethic. We’re looking forward to bring him back,” said Cone, whose team suffered a disappointing title defense in the ongoing Commissioner’s cup, losing to the Alaska Aces in the semis.
    Blakely is expected to arrive in the country sometime in July.
    Aside from San Mig, other teams which already announced the names of their imports are Barangay Ginebra San Miguel (Dior Lowhorn) and Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters (Tony Mitchell).
    Cornley will not be given a chance to defend his best import plum as management of Rain or Shine already decided to part ways with the wide-bodied wingman after a brush with the law last March.
    Petron is said to be eyeing former Rain or Shine reinforcement Arizona Reid, though team sources say there are also a number of prospects on the list.

    regarding AZ Ried. do the Ros management still has the right to hold him? if petron is serious to get AZ most likely they will win because they have a bigger tank. im not sure if how long would be the agreement between the import and his previous team before he can sign to another team. if the import did not play the next season after he played the previous one, does his old team has the right to keep him?

    *PBA import transfers allowed even sans waiver from mother ballclubs*
    By Gerry Ramos
    April 25, 2013, 08:34 pm


    Imports like San Mig's Denzel Bowles and Michael Dunigan of Air21 can now move to other PBA ballclubs even without waivers from their mother teams. Jerome Ascano

    DENZEL Bowles can play for Talk `N Text in the future or Michael Dunigan can switch to Barangay Ginebra even without a waiver from their mother teams after a couple of rule changes were approved by the PBA board of governors on Thursday.

    The rule change was part of the agenda tackled by the board headed by chairman Robert Non during a special meeting held at the league office in Libis, Quezon City.

    *As agreed upon, imports will no longer need the permission of their former teams when they switch teams in the future, except for imports who move to a sister ballclub by their mother clubs, in which case they need to get a waiver from the rest of the league's member teams.*

    A provision in the league’s free agency rules has also been modified, automatically making seventh-year players unrestricted free agents by the end of their contracts.

    The rule shall apply for incoming rookies beginning the 2014 season and will officially take effect once the 2020 season ends.

    The new rule takes out the right of refusal mother teams currently have on players after their seventh year in the league, although it gives mother teams the leeway to offer the player a new salary that is 20 percent above the league's salary cap.

    The league’s current salaray cap is pegged at P420,000 a month.

    ^^ the decision is on AZ. petron has a bigger fan base which i think one of the reason if he has decided to go with (if he's looking for popularity), plus a bigger money. but if he is going to consider the improvement of ROs from what it was before, for sure he has a bigger chance to defend the title next conference.

    If that happens, it will work both ways.
    RoS did not chose him to play for them last conference and AZ choosing Petron over them.

    More stories to tell. All is good for the PBA.

    ^ i think AZ was not available yet when the third conference started last season that's why they get Cornley. but he was on the reserve list just in case jamelle wont perform well.

    Iyong sa Ginebra import confirm na ba ito?
    Paano maglaro si Dior Lowhorn? ano position niya?

    There was a chance of getting AZ back but they stuck with Cornley.

    Yup. And by sticking with Cornley they won their first PBA championship.

    this is possible considering that petron has everything to get AZ. a huge fan base is a big factor when it comes to choices on which team a player would want to play. showing the player to a greener pasture is another asset which the petron has a bigger edge over Ros. i have no idea why the pba ratified the law of keeping the import which definitely would give the bigger teams the chance of getting good import.

    Hindi mo rin masisi PBA. Kasi maraming import na magaling pero di makapaglaro dahil sa previous rule. Example na natin si AZ last year di nakapaglaro sa inyo dahil sa magandang performance ni Cornley. Di rin makapaglaro sa ibang team dahil walang waiver. Si Brumfield ngayon na may posibility na maglaro Global w/o permission sa BGK.

    i have no idea on what was really the content of the previous agreement. but IMO, pba teams isn't that bad to keep their previous import tightly and prevent him from playing to other teams even if they already have a good import.

    Not the issue but it was still a good choice for RoS.

    There were times that, they wanted to change Cornley in the middle of the conference.

    These things could affect the decision making of AZ.

    I have a different opinion about that but i'd like to tweak it a little bit. For better competition, good imports should not be hoarded.

    Though many see it that richer teams can mostly benefit from it, my point of view is that, other teams would also have the luxury to take a good import from a crop of imports that rich teams had in the past but did not hire them back.

    Scouting for new imports is also expensive. If a team like Global Port or Barako can pick and choose from imports that they already competed with before but was not chosen by original team for some reason lets say, he was very good but did not fit the system, that would save them a lot. It would also give them an opportunity to be competitive from the beginning especially that now they know who they are getting instead of looking for other prospects that would likely be a hit or miss.

    Babalik pa ba si Cornley?

    I thought Chito Salud already laid the ban hammer on Cornley.

    There's a Tony Mitchell who took part in the recent NBA Draft Combine event held in Chicago. I'm not sure if that's the same guy who played for Talk N Text in the just concluded PBA Commissioner's Cup.
