Adamos, 25, was Alaska’s sixth overall pick. He now joins a frontcourt that features Barkley Eboña, Abu Tratter, and veteran Rodney Brondial.

“Excited ako na makasama sa Alaska Aces,” expressed Adamos, who was with his agent Ed Ponceja.

Meanwhile, Brown is a 6-foot-3 guard out of University of British Columbia. He was the Aces’ 16th overall selection in the virtual draft event,  He signed on for two years.

The Fil-Canadian sniper now joins a backcourt that has the likes of Jvee Casio and gunslingers Mike DiGregorio and Maverick Ahanmisi.

“I’m excited to get started with the Alaska Aces,” said Browne, who was with his agent Miguel Olfato.
