The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) will launch the Governors’ Cup on December 8, about six weeks after the conclusion of the all-Filipino championship won by TNT Tropang Giga.

According to a report on the league’s official website, commissioner Willie Marcial is “confident” that LGU heads will agree to bring back fans to five target venues the PBA has for the Governors’ Cup.

Per the PBA website:

“Kasalukuyan tayong nakikipagusap mga LGUs at tayo ay umasa na mapagbibigyan ang ating kahilingan na pahintulutang makapasok at makapanood ang ating mga fans ng laro.”

The report also noted that the December 8 opening game day is already confirmed at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, minus fans for now.

Additionally, the league is looking at four more venues: the Mall of Asia Arena, Smart-Araneta Coliseum, Ynares Center Antipolo, and the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The imports for the conference with a 6-foot-6 height limit are: KJ McDaniels (NLEX), Olu Ashaolu (Alaska), Brandon Brown (San Miguel), Cameron Forte (NorthPort), Antonio Hester (Terrafirma), Henry Walker (Rain or Shine), Tony Bishop (Meralco), Justine Brownlee (Ginebra), Jaylen Bond (Blackwater), McKenzie Moore (TNT), Paul Harris (Phoenix), and Mike Harris (Magnolia).
