Shawn Glover all set to join Blackwater once PBA Govs’ Cup resumes


Shawn Glover is all set to reinforce Blackwater in the 2021-22 PBA Governors’ Cup as he’s finally in town after a bit of delay due to the pandemic.

The American cager had already taken his official height measurement in the league’s office on Wednesday and gained clearance to play as he measured at 6’5″ 1/4, according to a report on the league’s official website.

Still, he has yet to practice with the entire Bossing. Teams are limited to per-batch workouts, as Metro Manila is still under Alert Level 3.

The PBA, with the help of the MMDA, is still seeking permission from local government units in resuming scrimmages for its ball clubs. The season-ending conference is targeted to continue by the first week of February.

January 5 was supposed to be the tilt’s resumption from the holiday break, but the league voluntarily paused activities when the authorities decided to heighten the capital’s quarantine classification due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.

Had there never been any hitch whatsoever, Blackwater was scheduled to battle Magnolia in the first game of a double-header offering to open the year.

If it’s any consolation, though, the break actually favored the Dioceldo Sy-owned franchise as it gave them more time to address its import situation.

The Bossing were in the process of bringing in Glover late last year, but securing a visa was difficult due to the pandemic — and the holidays, too.

Such a switch was made as the team went winless in five games with original import Jaylen Bond, further stretching their historic losing skid to 24.

Now, Glover is expected to bring in much-needed experience to Blackwater, having spent much of his career in Europe for seven years now that saw him win Danish Cup MVP and championship with the Bakken Bears in 2016.
