Barako Bull, Talk ‘N Text wants NBA veterans as imports for Commissioner’s Cup

Two NBA veterans have emerged as import prospects for the PBA Commissioner’s Cup, which imposes no height limits for reinforcements.

Al Thornton, who played for three NBA teams before signing for the Zhejiang Lions in the Chinese Basketball Association, might suit up for the Barako Bull Energy Colas after his commitment in China.

Talk ‘N Text, meanwhile, has expressed interest in tapping seven-foot center Jerome Jordan.

Sheryl Reyes, the local agent who represents Thornton, told InterAKTV in a text message that she has already talked to Barako Bull team manager Raffy Casyao about a potential deal.

“I will be going to China to watch his workout and preseason games. He is interested to come to the Philippines after his China stint,” said Reyes, who revealed that Casyao had expressed interest in her client even prior to this season.

“He told me they’re always been interested with Thornton, but never had a connect with his agents in the States.”

On Twitter, Thornton seemed to express interest in the idea.

“@FemaleAgentSR let’s get money. You got that brown bag?” wrote Thornton.

A product of Florida State, Thornton was a first round draft choice of the Los Angeles Clippers. He also played for the Washington Wizards and the Golden State Warriors.

Meanwhile, Reyes said Jordan, who was recently waived by the Memphis Grizzlies, has told her of his desire to play in the PBA, and has garnered interest from the Tropang Texters.

Jordan was drafted 44th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2010 NBA draft before being traded to the New York Knicks. He has had stints in Serbia, Slovenia, and the NBA D-League.
